Abstract

Many fungi are carried exclusively through seed and cause serious plant diseases. In the godowns, during storage, saprophytic fungi often cause seed rotting if the moisture and temperature conditions are favourable for their growth. Moreover when such defectively stored seed is sown, the soil inhabiting fungi cause further seed rotting and pre-emergence injuries. Literature from foreign countries shows that a protective covering of the seed by fungicidal substances prevents seed rotting and is generally helpful in establishing a healthy and vigorous growth of the seedlings. In India such studies had been comparatively few. Gopal Swarup (1950) studied the fungus flora of the stored wheat, oat and maize seed and the damage caused by some of the seed-borne fungi. When seeds were treated with various fungicides, the pre-emergence injuries were appreciably checked and the seedlings showed a good stand. Murthi (1951) carried out similar studies with sorghum and barley seed, and the authors extended these studies on rice, pea and gram seeds which form the subject matter of this paper.
