Experiment was conducted to study the effect of bruchid infestation on 100 seed weight,
viability, vigour and incidence of fungal flora of chick
pea during period 2010. The bruchid infested
pea seeds we collected from one year old crop see
ds under following categories viz. , (i) one holed,
(ii) two holed, (iii) hole near micropyle, (iv) multi holed and (v) normal seeds. The 100 seed weight, viability
and vigour were significantly more in the normal seeds which is closely followed by one hol
ed, two holed,
hole near micropyle an dmulti holed seeds. The maximum incidence percentage of fungal flora was found
on multi holed seeds as compared to other damaged and normal seeds.
