  Effects of physical seed sorting, seed treatment with garlic extract (1:2) and Vitavax 200 (0.4%) were investigated for controlling seed borne fungal flora and seed yield of jute (Corchorus capsularis L.). Seed health test of jute revealed that farmer`s saved seed (control) yielded all together 13 different fungi of 11 genera. Prevalence of Colletotrichum corchori, Macrophomina phaseolina, Botryodiplodia theobromae, Fusarium spp., Penicillium spp., Aspergillus niger and A. flavus were by 4.25, 10.75, 2.00, 4.25, 27.20, 8.00 and 22.50%, respectively. Septonema secedens Corda. was recorded as seed borne for the first time in jute. Garlic extract and Vitavax 200 increased the yield of jute by 47.38% and 46.05%, respectively over farmer`s saved seed (control) when grown in the net house. Under field conditions seed treatment with garlic extract and Vitavax 200 increased seed yield by 77.50 and 82.50%, respectively over farmer`s saved seed.

  The experiment was conducted to know the effect of seed treatment on the incidence of seed-borne fungal diseases and on production of seed yield of okra. The lowest germination (95.0%) was recorded in unclean farmer’s seeds; while highest germination (99.0%) was recorded in Vitavax-200 treated seeds followed by clean apparently healthy seeds (98.5%). Seed-borne fungal diseases of okra in the field, five diseases viz. Foot and root rot, Anthracnose and die-back, Cercospora leaf spot, Corynespora leaf spot and leaf blight, respectively caused by Fusarium oxysporum, Colletotrichum dematium, Cercospora abelmoschi, Corynespora cassiicola and Macrophonina phaseolina were recorded. The incidence of five seed-borne diseases have been found to be reduced by the use of seeds treated with Vitavax-200 and clean apparently healthy seeds. Vitavax–200 treated seeds as well as clean apparently healthy seeds increased the seed yield by 21.62 and 15.31%, respectively, over the unclean farmers’ seeds.
