HKRH-1, IR-64, HKR-46 and HKR-47, revealed more frequent association of Fusarium moniliforme with cultivars PR106 and HKR-126 with 73.3% recovery. Lowest population of this pathogen (13.3%) was associated with cultivars Jaya.
Sarocladium oryzae was more frequently isolated from cultivars Jaya and IR-64 with 73.3 and 60.0% recovery, respectively, and was least frequent in HKR-126 (6.7% recovery).
Key words :Rice cultivars, Fusarium moniliforme, Sarocladium oryzae
