Abstract:
Using ISTA technique seed samples of 12 wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) varieties were tested, seedborne fungi isolated viz., Alternaria tenuis, Aspergillus niger, Stemphylium herbarum, Fusarium moniliforme and Curvularia lunata. Efficacy of different fungicides was evaluated for the control of seed borne fungi associated with wheat of which Baytan, Vitavax, Benlate and Captan were found highly effective. All fungicides significantly increased the seedling emergence, number of grains per spike, 1000- grain weight, grain yield per plot and per hectare over control.
