Studies on inheritance of resistance to CGMMV showed that resistance was governed by polygenes with recessive nature. Out of 15 crosses studied, 10 were found to be interacting. All the interacting crosses (except one Phoot x Harela) showed duplicate type of epistasis. Kachri x Phoot (R × R type) cross exhibited heterosis in F1 and transgressive segregation in F2 for resistance. Studies pointed out the need to exploit this F1 further to develop a new breeding line with higher level of… CONTINUE READING
