Registration of genetic stocks
Ten new genetic stocks of wheat have been registered by the PlantGermplasm Registration Committee.To mitigate the threat posed by the stem rustvirulence Ug99, 318 wheat varieties were screenedat its hot spot Njoro (Kenya). The screeningrevealed that 78 genotypes were resistant to Ug99.Four wheat varieties HD 2781, DL 153-2, NI 5439and HI 8498(d) have been reconfirmed for theirresistance to Ug 99.
Dual-purpose barley RD 2715 has beenidentified for release in Madhya Pradesh,Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Kota and Udaipur divisionof Rajasthan and Jhansi division of Uttar Pradeshfor timely sown, irrigated conditions. This showedresistance to yellow rust.
Five hybrids, four composites and twoquality protein maize (QPM) hybrids have beenreleased for different agro-ecological zones of thecountry.
A new multicut forage sorghumhybrid CSH 24MF (UTMCH 1302) has beenidentified for release in all forage zones of India.It has lower HCN content (90-100 ppm), and isresistant to anthracnose, zonate leaf spot and greyleaf spot, and is tolerant to stem borer and shoot-fly.Dual-purpose hybrid sorghum CSH 25 has beenidentified for cultivation in
