Efficacy of seed dressings against Tilletia indica

The efficacy of several fungicides applied as seed dressings against Tilletia indica (EPPO A1 list) was evaluated in the laboratory. The effects of fungicides on teliospore germination were studied. Results showed that triazoles fungicides (i.e. tebuconazole, thifluzamide, propiconazole) were more effective than carboxin and thiram. A reduction of teliospore germination between 89-100% could be obtained. These results are promising but need to be further investigated in field conditions.
