Seeds are inhabited by seed mycoflora. Seed mycoflora influence seed texture, physiology and content. Some seed-borne fungi may be symbiotic to the seed germination where as some cause pathogenesis. Similarly, seed-borne fungi affect adversely to nutritive value of pulses. Biodegradation of protein content of pulses by their common and dominant seed-borne fungi like Aspergillus flavus, A. niger, A. fumigatus, Drechslera tetramera, Fusarium moniliforme, Rhizopus stolonifer etc. has been reported through artificial infestation of the pulses Green gram, Black gram, Chick pea and Pigeon pea. Results reveal considerable degradation in protein content of the test pulses.
