Abstract

The laboratory experiment was carried out during 1994-95 to 1996-97. The pooled results
revealed that all the fungicidal seed treatments were found significantly effective in
improving the germination, shoot length and root length of black point infected seed. Carbendazim
50 WP (0.1 %) recorded highest germination (91.50 %), shoot length (9.37 em) and root length
(12.35 em) followed by Thiram 75 WP (0.25%) and Dividend 30 WS (0.25%). The per cent
Increase in germination, shoot length and root length of treated seed was recorded in the range
of 5.53 to 19.00, 9.03 to 25.82 and 10.74 to 30.68 respectively over untreated seed.
