Abstract

Hot water and fungicidal treatments decreased the no. of fungal species on seeds of 3 koo-babul (Leucaena leucocephala) cultivars to 10 and 8, resp., in comparison with �17 on untreated seeds. Hot water- and fungicide-treated seeds exhibited higher percentages of germination than did untreated seeds. In field expts. fungicide-treated seeds produced more healthy seedlings than did untreated or hot water-treated seeds. Among the 5 fungicides tested (at 1.0 and 2.0 g/kg seeds), carbendazim [10605-21-7], benomyl [17804-35-2], and thiophanate-methyl [23564-05-8] were most effective. [on SciFinder(R)]
