Cultivated groundnut is susceptible to late leaf spot (LLS) caused by Phaeoisariopsis personata [(Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Aex] and resistance is low to moderate in the primary gene pool of groundnut. Closely related wild species in the secondary gene pool are highly resistant to the disease. All the closely related Arachis species are diploid and cultivated groundnut is a tetraploid. Utilization of diploid Arachis species to transfer LLS resistance is time consuming and cumbersome. New sources of… CONTINUE READING
