A set of 288 elite gen pool of linseed was sown paired rows of test entries of 3 m length at 30 cm row distance during rabi 2011-12 and 2012-13. This trail was executed in Augmented Block Design consisting 18 blocks of 16 test entries in each block. Two checks i.e. Neela (Resistant check) and Neelum (SC) were also planted in each block. Categorization of linseed genotypes based on their bud fly infestation (BFI) into five groups i.e. resistant, moderately resistant, moderately susceptible, susceptible and highly susceptible. During first year, a number of 11, 164,98, 15 and zero entries were grouped as resistant, moderately resistant, moderately susceptible, susceptible and highly susceptible, respectively, while 8, 146, 116, 18 and zero genotypes were rated in respective groups during second year. Common entries were also selected from each group and 8, 137, 82, 7 and zero genotypes were registered as resistant.
