Abstract:

Madhya Pradesh is the largest producer of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) in India. A number of abiotic and biotic factors are responsible for its yield gaps of being below its potential. Therefore an study was conducted during two consecutive years 2015-16 and 2016-17 at Department of Plant Pathology, JNKVV, Jabalpur to detect seed borne myco-flora associated with Chickpea seeds by different methods of seed testing. During the study, total 30 varieties of chickpea viz., JG 130, JG 63, JG 16, JG 315, JG 11, JG 74, JG 322, JG 412, JG 226, JG 6, JG 14, JG 62, JG 218, Pragati, Uday, Vijay, Radhey, KJD 1168 (Alok), Avrodhi, JAKI 9218, BGD 72, BGD 128, BGD 1057, BGD 1058, Digvijay, Samrat, Vihar, GNG 1946, GNG 1845 and K 850 were collected and examined from different location of Madhya Pradesh by standard protocols of Standard blotter paper, 2,4-D blotter, Agar plate, Deep freeze, Paper towel and Seedling symptoms test method. The revealed that, the Standard Blotter Paper Method was found best method (110.0%) for testing of seed associated mycoflora followed by Agar Plate Method (103.2%), Deep Freeze Method (90.8%), Paper towel method (80.1%), Seedling symptoms test (75.3%) and 2, 4-D Method (56.4%). It was also concluded a total eight genera of fungi viz. Fusarium oxysporum, Rhizoctonia bataticola, Alternaria alternata, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Curvularia lunata, Rhizopus spp. and Penicillium spp. were reported in different varieties of chickpea. Among them Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Rhizopus spp. and Fusarium oxysporum were predominant to all seed samples.
