Effect of substrate moisture on the sporulation of seed-borne Trichoconis Padwickii Ganguly from Nigerian rice (Oryza Sativa L.)

Chukwunyeaka Iloba


Twenty samples of rice seeds known to be infected with Trichoconis padwickii were used in this investigation. Substrate moisture levels tested were 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 millilitres respectively. Though the extreme moisture levels gave lower infection percentages and intensity than others, the difference in general was not statistically significant. Specific moisture effect was therefore not observed on the fungus.
