Change in Moisture Content of Fresh and Infested Mungbean Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek Seeds

Saurabh Singh Asha Sinha, J. Mishra and Richa Raaj    

Abstract: Four dominant fungi viz., Alternaria alternata, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium rubrum and Fusarium moniliformae were selected after isolation from mungbean seeds genotype HUM-12 and HUM-4. The seeds were infested with above dominant fungi. Moisture content of (fresh and infested both) were determined during different period of storage. Moisture content of mungbean seed was decreased due to infestation of selected dominant seed mycoflora. The results showed that Aspergillus niger infested mungbean seeds showed minimum moisture content followed by Penicillium rubrum. Highest Moisture content was recorded in freshly harvested mungbean seed genotype HUM-12 followed by HUM-4.
