The mode of inheritance of resistance to green leafhopper in 12 cultivars of rice Oryza saliva L. was studied. Seedlings of parent and hybrid populations were artificially infested with second- and third-instar virus-free green leafhopper nymphs. Seedling reaction was scored when TNI, the susceptible check, was completely killed. The results revealed that single dominant genes confer resistance in six varieties, two independent dominant genes in four varieties, and single recessive genes in two varieties. The single dominant genes in Sri Gaya, ARC 7320, and T23 and one of the two genes in Aswina and Bhura Rata 2 are allelic to Glh-1; while Bhawalia has Glh-5 gene. The second gene of Bhura Rata 2 is allelic to IR28 gene. Resistance in Chamar is controlled by two independent genes one of which is allelic to Glh-5 and the other allelic to IR28 gene. Bazal has Glh-2 and Glh-5. The single recessive gene in ARC 7012 is allelic toglh-4 but the single recessive gene in DV85 is nonallelic to and independent of glh-4. This new recessive gene is designated as glh-8. The single dominant genes of Dumai, Gadur, and the second gene of Aswina are nonallelic to all the known genes for resistance.
