Importance and distribution of seed-borne Bipolaris sorokiniana in wheat in Bangladesh.

Abstract

When 103 seed samples were tested by the freezing blotter method, 8 species of Bipolaris were isolated, of which the commonest was B. sorokiniana [Cochliobolus sativus]. Seedborne infection was highest in cv. Sonalika seed collected from Mymensingh (27.4%) and Meherpur (25.7%) and lowest (1.5%) in cv. Kanachan seed from Pabna.
