Yellow Mold


Seeds and non-emerged seedlings become shriveled and brownish. The cotyledons are covered with yellow or greenish yellow spores (Fig.).Decay is most rapid when infected seeds are sown.After seedling emergence there might not be any new infection.


  • Sow good quality and disease-free seed.  
  • Avoid damage to the seed testa.
  • Deep placement of seed at sowing.  
  • Treat the seed with Thiram at 3 g/kg seeds or with carbendazim at 2 g/kg seeds.
  • Follow crop rotation, i.e., cereal-cereal-groundnut.
