Description

Pearl millet leaf blast caused by Pyricularia grisea is one of the most important diseases of pearl millet in India. Host plant resistance is the economical and viable disease management strategy to control pearl millet blast; however, resistance in the commercial hybrids being grown in India is not available as no efforts were made in the past to breed for blast resistance. Therefore, efforts are being made to identify resistance sources to different pathotypes of M. grisea.
