Abstract:

All the tested fungi showed pronounced inhibitory effects on seed germination of brinjal cultivars as compared to control. All the five cultivars were inoculated with the Fusarium oxysporum, Phoma sp., Penicillium sp., Curvularia lunata, Alternaria tenuis, Aspergillus flavus and A. niger. Lowest seed germination was found in cultivar ABH-1 (56.63%). Significantly highest seed germination was observed in cultivar Doli-5 (72.13%). F. oxysporum, Phoma sp., Penicillium sp., C. lunata, A. tenuis, A. flavus, A. niger and control (uninoculated) showed average germination per cent 66.4, 70.3, 61.3, 62.5, 53.5, 62.1, 56.9 and 86.9, respectively. Among all the fungi, the seed germination was observed minimum in the seeds inoculated with A. tenuis (53.5%) followed by A. niger (56.9%). Maximum seed germination per cent was observed in Phoma sp. (70.3%) as compared to control (86.9%). Highest seedling vigour index was observed in cultivar Doli-5 (411) followed by GAOB-2 (403). The lowest seedling vigour index was found in cultivar ABH-1 (313) followed by cultivar GABH-3 (318) and GOB-1 (390).
