Evaluation of bio agents, botanicals and fungicides against the seed mycoflora of soybean

Shahare N. H.*, A. P. Kedar


The soybean is the prime oil seed crop and the sources of protein cultivated all over the world. Seed borne diseases are of the important concern with regard to low productivity. The seed borne fungal diseases can be controlled if the seeds are treated with effective chemical and biological fungicides. In the present investigation seed borne fungi were evaluated against the bio agent, plant extracts and chemical fungicides. The best results were exhibited by chemical fungicides followed by bio agent and botanicals. 


mycoflora; soybean; fungicide; botanicals.
