Seed mycoflora detected in agar plate method was Rhizopus stolonifer, Fusarium oxysporum, Curvularia lunata, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus,Alternaria alternata and Penicillium sp. in five different Indian bean cultivars. Overall 5.35 to 23.94 per cent seeds showed various seed mycoflora.Aspergillus niger developed maximum colonies and Penicillium sp. the least. Similarly seed mycoflora was detected in blotter paper method, 13.49 to 35.90 per cent seeds showed various seed mycoflora. Aspergillus niger developed maximum colonies and Rhizopus stolonifer the least. Per cent seed mycoflora was high in blotter paper mehod compared to agar plate method.

Abstract


Seed mycoflora detected in agar plate method was Rhizopus stolonifer, Fusarium oxysporum, Curvularia lunata, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus,Alternaria alternata and Penicillium sp. in five different Indian bean cultivars. Overall 5.35 to 23.94 per cent seeds showed various seed mycoflora.Aspergillus niger developed maximum colonies and Penicillium sp. the least. Similarly seed mycoflora was detected in blotter paper method, 13.49 to 35.90 per cent seeds showed various seed mycoflora. Aspergillus niger developed maximum colonies and Rhizopus stolonifer the least. Per cent seed mycoflora was high in blotter paper mehod compared to agar plate method.
