SCREENING CHILLI GENOTYPES FOR RESISTANCE TO THRIPS, Scirtotlzrips dorsalis Hood AND MITE, Polyphagotarsonemus latus (Banks)
Chilli (Capsicum annum L.) is one of the important spice crops of India and grown all over the globe. The crop is severely attacked by thrips, Scirlalhrrps dorsalis Hood and mites, Polyp/mgotarsonemus Ialus Banks which cause leaf curl symptom called “murda". Genotypes of chilli were evaluated during kharif seasons viz., 1997, 1998 and 1999 against thrips and mites to identify source for resistance. Of the 24 genotypes screened the per cent leaf curl index (LCI) against thrips ranged from 15.3 to 42.3 and mites 19.6 to 40.4. Pant C-1, LCA~304 and LCA~312 were found to be promising source of resistance against thrips and mites.
