The scanning electron micrograph of various fungi growing over sorghum and wheat seeds showed that, the conidia of Curvularia lunata were slightly curved, three septate, central cell were broad having surface ornamentation, darker than the end cell and arranged on sympodially branched conidiophores on sorghum seed. The mycelial structure of Drechslera tetramera on wheat showed network of hyphae, roughed conidiophores and cluster of conidia arranged on geniculate conidiophores. Conidia of Bipolaris sorghicola were smooth walled, straight and slightly curved attached to the geniculate conidiophores. Lytic mycelium of B. sorghicola, was also observed on sorghum seed.

Keywords: Curvularia lunata, Drechslera tetramera, Bipolaris sorghicola
