This study analyzed the physiological quality and plant in Eugenia dysenterica DC seeds. The treatments were control, drying, fungicide Cercobin® and thermotherapy. It was identified the genus Aspergillus, Fusarium, Penicillium and Rhizopus associated with seed treatment used as a witness. Drying was not an effective phytosanitary control and caused damage to the physiological quality of seeds. The fungicide was more efficient in the seeds prior to storage. Treatment with thermotherapy annulled the presence of Aspergillus and Rhizopus after 100 days of storage and did not cause significant losses in seed quality when compared with fungicide and witness.
