Abstract Charcoal rot caused by Macrophomina phaseolina in castor is one of the major pathogenic determinants for extreme yield loss. The charcoal rot resistance trait is complex and controlled by quantitative trait locis (QTLs). This study was aimed to develop linkage map and to identify novel QTLs associated with charcoal rot resistance in castor. A mapping population (F2:3) derived from the cross between two castor inbred lines JI 357 (Resistant genotype) and SKI 338 (Susceptible genotype… Expand
