Resistance of Lentil Varieties to Foliar Diseases

The research results posted below are from trials conducted at the NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center.

ASCOCHYTA BLIGHT

Ascochyta blight resistance ratings for many lentil varieties grown in North Dakota and Montana are available online in the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture’s publication “Varieties of Grain Crops 2013”. 

 

ANTHRACNOSE

Susceptibility of commercial lentil varieties to anthracnose; Carrington, ND (2012):  ‘CDC Imigreen CL’ (a medium-green lentil) and ‘CDC Viceroy’ (a small green lentil) exhibited the best resistance to anthracnose.  The medium-green lentil ‘CDC Richlea’ and the large-green lentils ‘Pennell’ and ‘Riveland’ showed elevated susceptibility to anthracnose.

Susceptibility of commercial lentil varieties to anthracnose; Carrington, ND (2011):  The large-green lentil ‘CDC Greenland’, extra-small red lentil ‘CDC Rosetown, and small-red lentils ‘CDC Redberry’ and ‘CDC Rouleau’ exhibited the best resistance to anthracnose.  The small-green lentil ‘CDC Viceroy’ exhibited intermediate performance.

SCLEROTINIA STEM ROT (WHITE MOLD)

Susceptibility of commercial lentil varieties to Sclerotinia stem rot (white mold); Carrington, ND (2012):  The small-green lentil ‘CDC Viceroy’, extra-small red lentil ‘CDC Impala CL’, and small-red lentil ‘CDC Maxim CL’ exhibited excellent tolerance to Sclerotinia and yielded well under high Sclerotinia disease pressure.  Among medium-green lentils, ‘CDC Imigreen CL’ was less susceptible to Sclerotinia than ‘CDC Impress CL’; ‘CDC Richlea’ exhibited intermediate performance.  The large-green lentils ‘Pennell’ and ‘Riveland’ performed poorly under high Sclerotinia disease pressure.
