Abstract
Twenty-three ground nut (Arachis hypogaea L.) varieties were screened for resistance to natural infection with bacterial wilt caused by Pseudomonas solanacearum E.F. Sm. Under field conditions in Uganda, in 1969 and 1970. Entry No. 708 and United States Department of Agriculture accessions PI 341884, PI 341885 and PI 341886 were immune to Biotypes 3 and 4 while local commercial varieties Roxo and Red Beauty were susceptible to both biotypes. The results indicate that commercially acceptable varieties resistant to bacterial wilt Biotypes 3 and 4 could be developed from the varieties screened.
