Control of seed borne fungi of sorghum effect of selected fungicides on fungi and seed germination



Control of seed borne fungi of sorghum effect of selected fungicides on fungi and seed germination



Pesticides 23(10): 29-32



Effect of selected seed dressing fungicides viz. Thiram, Rovral plus thiram (equal proportion), Rovral plus Bavistin (equal proportion) and Thiram plus Bavistin (2:1 proportion) all @ 0.3% and Delsan-30 @ 0.25% and 0.3% on seed-borne fungi and germination was tested immediately after treatment and 4 to 5 months after treatment during 1981-82 and 1982-83, using different entries of sorghum. Rovral plus Bavistin followed by Rovral plus Thiram and Thiram plus Bavistin treatments proved most effective in reducing seed-borne fungi and enhancing seed germination. Delsan-30 failed to persist in storage. Rovral plus Thiram was found effective against most of the coloured fungi but not against Fusaria. Treated and untreated seeds of sorghum entries CSH-1, CSH-5, 2077 A and 296 A showed slight reduction in germination after 4 to 5 months of storage but remaining entries CSH-9, IS-84 and CS 3541 gave improved germination.
