Thirteen progenies developed from mould resistant varietal cross were evaluated for mould reaction under natural and artificial screening conditions. Yield components and the magnitude of σ2g, σ2g1, and σ2e were also studied for five characters. Progeny × Location interaction were not significant. Progeny ‘H-142’ was high yielding and resistant to head mould, both under natural and artificial infestation. The tan plant type progenies were found to be mould resistant and can form criteria for selecting progenies resistant to moulds
