Moore Kevin Seed test Figure 1.. After 10-12 days the number of seeds from which Ascochyta rabiei (cause of Ascochyta blight), Botrytis cinerea (cause of Botrytis grey mould and Botrytis seedling disease, Botrytis%), or other fungi (Other%, saprophytes that do not normally attack healthy chickpeas but can colonise weather damaged seed) was recorded... There was no correlation between Emergence and the percentage of seed that yielded either: no fungi (Clean%, R squared = 13.4%), Botrytis (Botrytis%, R squared = 9.3%), saprophytic fungi (Other%, R squared = 3.9%) or Ascochyta (R squared = 0.0% - data not shown)...
