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 different seed health testing was undertaken during 20012-13 at Department of Plant Pathology, College of Agriculture, Bijapur, UAS, Dharwad. Among six different seed health testing methods used to assess their efficacy and reliability, standard blotter method was found to be good for the detection of seed borne infection of A. sesami in sesame.

Keywords: Sesame, Seed borne fungi, Seed health testing methods.
