Stripe disease of barley caused by Drechslera graminea (Rabenh.) Shoemaker is a widely distributed disease in many barley grown parts of the world, but it has assumed more importance with the introduction of some new high yielding varieties. The present investigations were undertaken during 2007-08 and 2008-09 crop seasons with a view of elicit information on effect of six rowed barley lines/varieties when compared with two rowed barley lines/varieties on the basis of mean infection value, two rowed lines/varieties had more resistance than six rowed. Grouping on the basis of mean infection value in six rowed barley 3 lines/ varieties were highly resistant, while in two rowed 4 lines / varieties were highly resistant. Use of resistant varieties is one of the most economical and efficient way to counteract the pathogen due to its long lasting nature.
Key words:Stripe disease, barley, genotype, six rowed, two rowed
