Abstract:

Like other crops, pea varieties were also harbour the seed borne mycoflora resulted in less germination and plant vigour index. Six varieties of pea and one local variety were taken in the present investigation to assess the seed health by incubation methods. It was found that varying degree and type of mycoflora associated with pea seeds were recorded. The mycoflora recorded were Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Penicillium sp., Trichoderma sp., Basidiophora sp., Chaetomium sp., Aspergillus fumigatus, Alternaria sp., Curvularia sp., Fusarium sp., Rhizopus sp. and Rhizoctonia sp. In all these methods, poor germination was observed in local variety, may be due to presence of seed borne mycoflora with higher frequencies whereas Shubhra variety has higher germination due to lower frequencies of detected mycoflora as compared to other varieties of pea taken in the study.
