The groundnut germplasm and varieties were evaluated to identify the sources of resistance to collar rot (Aspergillus niger), stem rot (Sclerotium rolfsii) and dry root (Rhizoctonia bataticola) diseases. A total of 64 AICRP groundnut germplasm and 33 popular groundnut varieties were screened under sick plot condition at MARS, Raichur. Only 31 germplasm showed highly resistant to stem rot; 37 germplasm lines resistance against collar rot; and 11 germplasm showed resistant against dry root rot diseases. However, out of 33 groundnut varieties evaluated against these diseases, none of the varieties showed highly resistant and resistant against three diseases and only 18 varieties found moderately resistant against collar rot and 20 varieties against stem rot and 29 varieties for dry root rot diseases.
