The effect of different fungicides and bioagents on seed mycoflora of mung bean was evaluated. The seed treatment improved the seed germination and reduced seed borne mycoflora of mung bean seeds. In total, twelve fungi belonging to ten genera were isolated from mung bean seeds collected from different districts of Karnataka. Isolated fungi were identified as Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus candidus, Alternaria alternata, Penicillium notatum, Rhizopus stolonifer, Cladosporium sp., Fusarium oxysporum, Mucor sp., Curvularia lunata,  Chaetomium globosum  and Macrophomina phaseolina. Out of seven fungicides tested, seed treatment with captan at the rate 4 g kg-1 of seed significantly reduced seed mycoflora (78.68 %). Seed treatment with Trichoderma harzianum at the rate of 8 g kg-1 of seed reduced the seed mycoflora up to (69.63 %) followed by Pseudomonas fluorescences (66.49 %) and Trichoderma viride (64.39 %).

Key words: Mung bean, Seed treatment, Mycoflora, Fungicides, Bioagents.
