The impact of seed-borne fungal pathogens on wheat germination and yield: A comprehensive review

Author(s):

Nitin K Khedwal

Abstract:

Seed-borne fungal pathogens significantly impact wheat (Triticum aestivum) production by affecting seed germination, seedling vigor, and crop yield. This review synthesizes current knowledge on the prevalence, identification, and effects of seed-borne fungi on wheat germination and yield. It discusses the mechanisms by which these pathogens affect wheat, the environmental factors influencing their prevalence, and the strategies for managing seed-borne fungal diseases. By compiling findings from recent studies, this review aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the challenges posed by seed-borne fungi and the integrated approaches needed to mitigate their impact on wheat production.
