The distribution of the associated fungi with wheat kernels, soybean and sesame seeds was studied. Seed borne fungi: Aspergillus flavus and Fusarium solani were only associated with soybean and sesame seeds. The most predominant fungi in wheat kernels beside the aforementioned fungi were: A. niger, Penicillium sp., Alternaria tenuis and Helminthosporium sativum. The general chemical analysis of fungi, healthy and infected kernels and seeds were determined. The fungal genus and species behaved differently according to the principal chemical constituents of the seeds under study. The differences between the infected kernels or seeds and healthy ones in their chemical composition indicated that there was slight interference between the fungal components and crop constituent.
