Abstract:

Mungbean is grown principally for its protein content. Seed borne mycoflora affect the germination and vigour of seeds. Seed health is an important factor in the control of diseases, since an infected seed is less viable, has low germination, reduced vigour and reduced yield. Total five cultivars viz., GM 3, GM 4, GAM 5, K 851 and Meha and eight seed mycoflora (fungal species) namely, Alternaria alternata, Fusarium oxysporum, Aspergillus niger, A. flavus, A. terreus, A. fumigatus, Macrophomina phaseolina and Phoma sp. were isolated and used for study. Result revealed that the minimum seed germination was observed in the seed treated with Macrophomina phaseolina (55.55%). The significantly lowest seedling length was observed in cultivar Meha (4.81 cm). Among all the tested fungus, seedling vigour index (SVI) was highly influenced by Macrophomina phaseolina (229.93). The lowest seedling vigour index was found in cultivar Meha (302.48). The highest per cent discolouration intensity was observed by Macrophomina phaseolina (85.25) in cultivar Meha.
