MYCOFLORA ASSOCIATED WITH INUNDATED BENGAL GRAM PLANTS AND THEIR MANAGEMENT
Rhizoctonia, Ascochyta, Helminthosporium and Aspergillus. Among these Alternaria was predominant
(57.4%) followed by Aspergillus (23.3%), Rhizoctonia (10.7%), Helminthosporium (7.5%) and
Ascochyta (1.1%). Seeds looked apparently healthy, but they were found small and slightly wrinkled.
Alternaria alternata and Ascochyta rabiei, besides Aspergillus flavus were isolated from young seedlings
of untreated seeds. Seed treatment with carbendazim or benomyl @ 0.1% was effective to eradicate
the seed borne infection of Ascochyta rabiei and Alternaria alternata and improved the germination
in Apparently Healthy (AH) and Apparently Diseased (AD) seeds. Hence drying followed by treatment
with 0.1% benomyl or carbendazim of seed from inundated bengal gram plants was recommended to
