Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) is one of the most important oilseed crops of the world valued for its highly nutritious edible oil. It is a multipurpose crop having various uses like source of edible oil, cattle feed, medicinal and industrial products. The leaf spot disease caused by Alternaria carthami Chowdhary is a major destructive disease of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) in India. The disease has been reported to cause seed yield losses to the tune of 10 to 25 per cent. Under severe conditions, it has been reported to cause 50 per cent loss in seed yield 34 germplasm accessions were screened for the identification of resistance or even tolerance for the disease. The incidence of Alternaria leaf spot was observed in the field under natural conditions. Accessions were grouped based on 0 to 9 disease rating scale. Five accessions showed resistant reaction with grade 3 and eighteen accessions showed moderately resistant (MR) reaction with grade 5 and seven genotypes showed susceptible reaction with grade 7.
