Abstract: A study was undertaken to find the biodiversity of Fusarium spp. on stored cereal grains (maize, sorghum and paddy) collected from different places of Karnataka State, India by testing seed health. Altogether ten Fusarium species were found to be associated with different cereals such as, F. moniliforme (25.35%), F. graminearum (15.5%), F. proliferatum (14%), F. oxysporum (12.68%), F. avenaceum (9.86%), F. subglutinans (8.45%), F. semitectum (5.63%), F. poae (4.22%), F. sporotrichiodes (2.81%) and F. anthophilum (1.40%). The occurrence of Fusarium species were higher in maize 43.66%, followed by sorghum 38.02% and very low in paddy 18.31%. Among them F. moniliforme, F. avenaceum, F. subglutinans, F. semitectum, F. graminearum and F. oxysporum were common on all the three cereal grains.
