Studies on seed-borne fungi of Groundnut. I. A new method for detecting fungi in small samples of seed, with special reference to Macrophomina phaseoli (Maubl.) Ashby (syn. Sclerotium bataticola Taub.). II. Laboratory assay of fungicides for controlling seed-borne infections



Proc. int. Seed Test. Assoc 32(3): 655-666



A hundred seeds of each var. were cut each into 3 parts, 1 of these being used for a moist blotter test and the other 2, after pretreatment with Na hypochlorite, for a blotter test and an agar test on PDA. The agar test, with 5 days at 25 degrees C, was most satisfactory for M. phaseoli and Aspergillus niger. The blotter test after treatment takes about 8 days and was best for Fusarium. Without a pretreatment Aspergillus and Penicillium spp. were too prevalent.
