Breeding for disease resistance is an important activity of all crop improvement programmes. This helps development of varieties, which by virtue of built-in genetic resistance to diseases help rotect environment, enhance agricultural productivity and make crop production a profitable venture. More often than not pathogens have a large number of variants that are referred to as biotypes or races and the concerned host, i.e. crop plant has a range of genes con-ferring resistance to these races.
