Abstract
<jats:p>Fungi associated with eight cultivars of wheat have been investigated. Twenty seven species were isolated from external and internal surface of all the wheat (&lt;i&gt;Triticum aestivum&lt;/i&gt; L.) cultivars respectively. Out of five dominant and subdominant fungi anly &lt;i&gt;Aspergillus terreus&lt;/i&gt; and &lt;i&gt;Alternaria tenuis&lt;/i&gt; were able to colonize internally. The culture filtrates of test fungi reduced the germination of all wheat varieties up to different degrees.</jats:p>
