Journal Title:Nature Environment and Pollution Technology

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.
