Registration of Six Lentil Germplasm Lines with Combined Resistance to Viruses
Six lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) germplasm lines, ILL 74 (Reg. no. GP‐208, PI 612870), ILL 75 (Reg. no. GP‐209, PI 612871), ILL 85 (Reg. no. GP‐210, PI 612872), ILL 213 (Reg. no. GP‐211, PI 612873), ILL 214 (Reg. no. GP‐212, PI 612874), and ILL 6816 (Reg. no. GP‐213, PI 612875) have been identified for resistance to viruses by the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA), located at Aleppo, Syria. The germplasm lines are conserved at the Genetic Resources Unit of ICARDA under the auspices of the Food and Agriculture Organization, hence they are termed as “FAO‐designated” germplasm. The Genetic Resources Unit of the Center maintains the lines with the identification code (L) which corresponds to our code (ILL), L 74 (ILL 74), L 75 (ILL 75), L 85 (ILL 85), L 213 (ILL 213), L 214 (ILL 214), and L 6816 (ILL 6816). Among the lines, ILL 75 has resistance to bean leaf roll virus (BLRV), faba bean necrotic yellows virus (FBNYV), and Soybean Dwarf Virus (SbDV) and ILL 74, ILL 85, ILL 213, ILL 214 and ILL 6816 are resistant to FBNYV and BLRV.
