Twenty three fungal species were found associated with seeds of eight cultivars of pearl millet (Pennisetum typhoides). Maximum fungi were reported from seeds of var. BJ-104 and ICMS -7703. Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium moniliforme and Penicillium oxalicum were found pathogenic causing seed rot, seed discolouration and germination inhibition. Captan and Dithane M-45 proved best for bajra seed dressing.
