Field experiment was conducted during Kharif season at Sorghum Research Unit, Dr. P.D.K.V., Akola to know the effect of different fungicidal spraying for grain mold resistance on sorghum. The results of current investigation indicated that in susceptible sorghum genotype MS-296 B, lowest FGMR, TGMR and per cent grain infected observed in treatment Tebuconazole (1.5 ml/lit.) + Thiram (2 g /lit.) at 12.40%, 13.53%, and 18.47% respectively however, highest values showed by water sprayed treatment at 24.80%, 24.93%, 33.87% respectively with respect to other treatments. The maximum 1000 seed weight and germination percentage exhibited by treatment Tebuconazole (1.5 ml /lit.) + Thiram (2 g /lit.) at 33.35 g. and 88.33% respectively. At flowering stage, least association of seed borne fungi recorded in treatment Thiram (2 g/lit.)+ Carbendazim (1 g/lit.). At milk stage, dough stage, physiological maturity stage and on glumes, treatment Tebuconazole (1.5 ml /lit.) + Thiram (2 g/lit.) found superior and minimum association of seed borne fungi. Highest association of fungi recorded in water sprayed treatment followed by controlled treatment.
