Isolation of seed-borne fungi from stored groundnut seeds and their role on seed spoilage



Isolation of seed-borne fungi from stored groundnut seeds and their role on seed spoilage



Madras Agricultural Journal 59(1): 1-6



27 species of fungi were isolated from the pods and seeds of stored groundnuts collected from different areas of Tamil Nadu. Germination was not seriously affected by most of the fungi except Aspergillus niger and Rhizoctonia bataticola which reduced germination by about 30% after storage for 6 months. Root development was reduced 93 to 95% by A. flavus and A. niger; shoot development was most reduced (72%) by Rhizoctonia bataticola.
