Title: Some Studies on the Fungus Macrophomina Phaseolina (Tassi) Goid Isolated From Chickpea (Cicer Arietinum L.) Seeds
Author: Tibin, Sailwa Ibrahim Musa
Abstract: This research was conducted on four varieties of chickpea seeds to find out the fungi that were carried on or inside those seeds. One variety was brought from Zalingi another from Jebel Marra and the other two from Hudeiba Research Station (Shendi, Wad Hamid). The tests were performed according to (ISTA Rules, 1966) which included blotter test, agar plate method and dry seed inspection. The dry seed inspection revealed contaminated, malformed and broken seeds. After the seeds were treated with sodium hypochlorite 1% solution the following fungi were found: Macrophomina phaseolina, Drechslera sp. and Alternaria sp. M. phaseolina, was detected in high percentage. The fungus was isolated and the tests performed showed that malt-extract was the best medium for the growth of the fungus. When the fungus was treated with the fungicide Bayleton it has reduced its growth even when used in the low concentration of 10 ppm. On the other hand the fungicide Tilt has completely inhibited the growth of the fungus.
