Assessment of pigeonpea seed traits for resistance to podfly, Melanagromyza obtusa in pigeonpea was studied at Regional Agricultural Research Station, Lam, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh during kharif, 2016. The study revealed that, test weight, seed length, seed width, no. of seedsdamaged per pod and protein content had a significant positive correlation with podfly infestation. Whereas, phenol content had a significant negative correlation with podfly infestation. Therefore, these traits can be used as phenotypic and biochemical markers to identify pigeonpeagenotypes with resistance to M. obtusa, and use in podfly resistance breeding program.
