The current investigation focuses on comprehensively analyzing the mycoflora associated with seeds, germination rates, and overall vigor indices of two prominent plant species: Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) and Cabbage (B. oleracea var. oleracea L.). The study explores the effects of diverse leaf extracts both independently and in combination with Trichoderma and fungicides, employing an in vitro approach. Notable seedborne fungi such as Penicillium sp., Rhizoctonia solani, Aspergillus niger, Fusarium oxysporum, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium solani, and Alternaria sp. were identified on Chilli and Cabbage seeds. The findings highlight the profound inhibitory impact of Trichoderma viridae in synergy with plant extracts against Aspergillus sp. and Fusarium spp., while the fungicide Dithane M-45 exhibited the greatest inhibition against Aspergillus sp., Fusarium spp., Penicillium, and Alternaria. Seeds treated with bioagents demonstrated remarkable enhancements in germination rates, leading to significantly increased root and shoot lengths, ultimately resulting in the cultivation of more robust and vigorous seedlings.Pages: 28-31 | Views: 50 | Downloads: 23Download Full Article: Click Here
