Abstract:
Reaction of five wheat varieties to Bipolaris sorokiniana and Fusarium moniliforme was assessed in terms of prevalence of the pathogen on the seeds, symptom severity on the growing plants and effects of the pathogens on the yields. Prevalence of B. sorokiniana was 4-4.25% in kanchan and Akbar and of Fusarium monilifome was 2.25-2.75% in Gourab and Kanchan. Disease severity was the highest in Barkat both in laboratory and field conditions. However, Bipolaris sorokiniana infection was more severe than that of Fusarium moniliforme. Percent diseased grains were high in Barkat, while grain yield was low in barkat and sonalika due to inoculation of B. sorokiniana and F. moniliforme. Thus, there was a significant variation in reaction among the wheat varieties to the pathogens.
