To evaluate the efficacy of various six seed dressing fungicides (Derosal, Daconil, Aliette, Topsin-M, Mancozeb and Precure-Combi), two concentration levels 0.15% and 0.25% of each fungicide and rice variety Bas-385 were used in all experiments. Overall performance of all fungicides in all experiments was found to be better on the average basis at 0.25% than 0.15% concentration. However, the results of all fungicides at both concentrations in all experiments were significant statistically. By using standard blotter paper technique, Daconil exhibited best results followed by Derosal and Topsin-M. Aliette and Precure-Combi showed moderate results. Least impact on germination was shown by Mancozeb.
