Sesame is as an important oilseed crop and the diseases are taking heavy toll of the productivity. The seed borne organisms not only reduce the quality but also have an effect on germination. In view of these, understanding of seed borne mycoflora, their detection and management are important. The present investigation on management of seed-borne diseases of sesame through novel seed dressing fungicides, botanicals and bio-agents is undertaken during 20012-13 at Department of Plant Pathology, College of Agriculture, Bijapur, UAS, Dharwad. Among nine seed dressing fungicides evaluated against A. sesami by poisoned food technique, hexaconazole was found statistically superior over other treatments. Among the six plant extracts tested against A. sesami, maximum inhibition of mycelial growth was noticed in Allium sativum L. at 5%. However, at 10 per cent concentration, Zingiber officinal. Among the six bio-agents, maximum reduction in colony growth of A. sesami was observed in T. harzianum and was superior to all the other bioagents tested. Among the nine treatments of fungicides, botanicals and bio-agent by rolled towel method, the hexaconazole exhibited least per cent seed infection.

Keywords: Sesame, Seed borne fungi, Seed dressing fungicides, Botanicals and bio-agents.
