Abstract

An experiment was conducted to study the seed borne pathogens associated with Rabi sorghum genotypes at
Regional Agricultural Research Station, Bijapur Karnataka . Fungi associated with Rabi sorghum genotypes were detected by using blotter method and studied the fungal colony characters after isolation. About six different seed borne pathogens were identified in the order of infection were, Aspergillus Spp, Penicillium Spp, Fusarium Spp, Rhizopus Spp, Botrytis Spp, Curvularia Spp. Among these fungi the most predominant fungi were Aspergillus spp. (20%), Penicillium spp.(16%), Fusarium spp.(16%), Rhizopus spp.(12%) in terms of per cent of infection on the seeds.
