Sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is a vital life-sustaining food crop for human being as well as for livestock in many parts of world. In India, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu are major sorghum growing states. Therefore, investigation was undertaken during 2016 at N. A. U., Navsari on isolation of sorghum seed infecting fungi, (Colletotrichum sp., Fusarium moniliforme, Alternaria alternata, Curvularia lunata, Macrophomina sp., Aspergillus niger and A. flavus.) and symptomatology induced by these seed infecting fungi, affect on seed quality, loss of seed germination and seedling vigour. Therefore seeds are treated with bio-control agents. All the tested bio-control agents were found significantly superior in inhibiting the mycelial growth of the pathogen over control. Among them seed treated with Trichoderma viride recorded highest seed germination (83.00%) and shoot length (7.10 cm). The maximum root length recorded in Trichoderma harzianum (6.90 cm) and maximum seedling vigour index recorded in Pseudomonas fluorescens (1137.60).
