Fungi incidence in Phaseolus vulgaris L. seeds from State of Sergipe.

Abstract

The occurrence of fungi in bean seeds from Sergipe state was evaluated. Three cultivars (IPA06, Badejo and Carioca Rajado) obtained from bean growers in the municipality of Simão Dias - SE were analyzed and tested using the blotter method, incubated for seven days, with a sample of 25 seeds with 8 replications, with a total of 200 seeds per cultivar. A high incidence of Fusarium solani f. sp. solani (0.5 a 12.5%) and Rhizoctonia solani (1.0 a 39.5%) in all cultivars was observed. Others pathogens of bean seeds like Cladosporium cladosporoides, Pythium sp., Sclerotium rolfsii e Phoma exigua var exigua e Sclerotium rolfsii were also identified, but with low indices. The presence of Penicillium sp. (0.5 a 10.0%) was observed in all cultivars and Aspergillus (14.5 a 97.5%) only in cultivars Badejo and Carioca Rajado.
