The aim of the present study is to identification and classification of different associated fungi from the seeds of Eruca sativa. Total 10 species of fungal pathogens belonging to 7 genera are isolated from the Saudi (Ss) and Indian seeds of Eruca sativa. Saudi seeds affected by the fungal pathogens namely, A. niger, A. flavus, A fumigates, Mucor spp., Pencillium spp., while Indian seeds affected by Aspergillus niger, A. flavus, A. fumigates, Aspergillus terreus, Pencillium spp., Mucor spp., Rhizopus stolonifer, Humicola insolens, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, Fusarium oxysporum. However, many of the soil borne or seed borne associated fungal pathogens spread the diseases in plants as well as in human beings. So the present study reveals that, the proper identification of fungal pathogens and their symptoms are easily recognized. Then the prevention care could be taken during the agriculture and high yield produced before the spread of symptoms and diseases.
