Viral diseases are considered to be the major limiting factor in chili pepper production. Chili veinal mottle virus (ChiVMV) is one of the important viruses, which decrease yield by 50%. Screening of 32 (exotic and indigenous) chili pepper germplasm against ChiVMV through symptomatology and serology (DAS-ELISA) under glasshouse conditions showed that all local cultivars (12) except Rawala and Gola Peshawari, are susceptible to ChiVMV, however, Asian Vegetable Research Center (AVRDC) lines CV-1, CV-2, CV-3, CV-7. CV-11 and CV-12 were found highly resistant to both Sindh and Punjab isolates under controlled conditions.
