Abstract

Twenty-eight genotypes of maize were screened against Banded Leaf and Sheath blight disease of maize.Four accessions were found resistant viz.,Pragati,KH-94,Proagro-4212,MH117, three were found highly susceptible viz., Amar, Sweety, Suguna and remaining twenty one were found susceptible. None were found highly resistant.
