Evaluation of Pepper Lines Against Tomato Leaf Curl Virus

Shahid Aslam Siddiqui , Saif Khalid , M. Bashir Ilyas and M. Bashir Ilyas

Abstract:
In search of resistance/tolerance source against tomato leaf curl virus (TLCV), a whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) transmitted Geminivirus, seven pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) lines were inoculated with TLCV through B. tabaci in controlled conditions. Symptoms started to appear seven days after inoculation. Downward leaf curling and stunting of plants was the most common symptom observed. Symptom severity matched with ELISA values. All lines were highly susceptible (high ELISA valus), except PBC-491, which showed milder symptoms and low virus titer.
