Effect of seed treatment with fungicides and insecticides on seed borne fungi, storage insect pest, seed viability and seedling vigour of groundnut



Effect of seed treatment with fungicides and insecticides on seed borne fungi, storage insect pest, seed viability and seedling vigour of groundnut



Seed Research (New Delhi) 26(1): 62-72



With a view to assess the efficacy of fungicides and insecticides on seed borne fungi, insect pest, seed viability and vigour index of groundnut seeds under storage, seeds of cv. TMV 2 dried to 4.6 per cent moisture content were treated separately with fungicides, insecticides and fungicide-insecticide combinations and stored in cloth bags and polythene bags of 600 guage under the ambient conditions for a period of 18 months. Seed treatment with Thiram (@ 3.0g/kg seed) controlled seed borne fungi effectively and also protected seeds of groundnut from the attack of Corcyra cephalonica for a considerable period and maintained seed viability and vigour upto 18 months in polythene bags.
