Abstract In okra Macrophomina phaseolina and Furasium verticilloides cause collar‐rot, seedling‐rot and other severe diseases at fruit maturing stages. These stages were located in all the components of the seeds. The seeds collected from seeds infected with Macrophomina phaseolina and Fusarium verticilloides revealed 100% infection. Such seeds resulted in pre‐ and post‐emergence mortalities. Inoculated seeds also showed pre‐ and post‐emergence death of the seedlings. The fungi seed‐transmitted showed disease symptoms at different growth of okra plant. Fusarium verticilloides causes the wilt and Macrophomina phaseolina causes the collar‐rot. Until now seed transmission of these fungi have not been studied. Hence, in the present study an attempt has been made to fill this lacunae.
