An experiment was conducted in the Field of SAU (Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural
University) farm allotted for the Department of Plant Pathology. Sher-e-Bangla
Agricultural University, Dhaka to screen out the resistant cultivars of eggplant
against wilt disease. Eight cultivars viz. Nayantara, Singhnath, Dhundul, Kazla,
Marich Begun Luffa, Kata Begun and Uttara were used as treatments. At 55
days after transplanting (DAT) the cultivar Luffa exhibit the highest bacterial
wilt incidence (80%) and the lowest wilt incidence was recorded in the cultivar
Kata Begun (30%). At 90 DAT the highest Fusarium and Nemic wilt incidence
was recorded in the cultivar Luffa and the lowest wilt incidences were recorded
in the cultivar Kata Begun. The highest shoot height was recorded in the
cultivar Kata Begun and the lowest shoot height was recorded in the cultivar
Singhnath. The highest gall number was recorded in the cultivar Luffa and the
lowest gall number was recorded in the cultivar Kata Begun. The highest yield
per hectare (29.84 t/ha) was recorded in the cultivar Nayantara and the lowest
yield (10.50 t/ha) was recorded in the cultivar Dhundhul. Among the cultivars
Kata Begun graded as resistant for both Bacterial, Fungal and Nemic wilt.
