Abstract

Seventy accessions of coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) were screened for resistance against stem gall, a severe disease caused by Protomyces macrosporus Unger., with the goal to select the resistant cultivars. The accessions PH-7, Pant Haritima, COR-17 and COR-2 were highly resistant. These may be used as the parents to breed high yielding accessions resistant to stem gall disease.
