Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) a spice cum vegetable crop belongs to the family Solanaceae. It is an indispensable spice essentially used in every Indian cuisine due to its pungency, taste, appealing odour and flavour. Chilli fruits are rich sources of vitamin A, C, E and P. The present study was undertaken during kharif 2014 at experimental farm, Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, College of Agriculture, Raichur during kharif 2014 to screen genotypes resistant to Fusarium wilt and molecular characterization for Fusarium wilt resistance in M2 and M3 generation. Among 62 selected genotypes 26 genotypes showed resistant, 32 genotypes showed moderately resistant and 3 genotypes registered susceptible reaction in M2 generation. However, only one genotype recorded highly susceptible reaction to Fusarium wilt. In M3 generation among 73 screened genotypes 32 showed resistant, 29 genotypes were found to be moderately resistant and 12 genotypes exhibited susceptible reaction. Molecular diversity assessment in M3 chilli mutant genotypes using RAPD markers revealed high variability among the genotypes at molecular level and high divergence among these genotypes.

Keywords: Capsicum, Chilli, Fusarium wilt, M2 and M3 generation, RAPD.
