S. Hussain, S.M. Iqbal and B.A. Malik 

Mashbean (Vigna mungo L) Hepper) an important pulse crop of Pakistan is planted over 85,000 hectares giving an yield of 30- 40 thousand metric tonnes (Anon., 1990). Of the fungal, bacterial and viral diseases which produce an annual loss of 12-14% the charcoal rot caused by Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid., produces 100% damage to the crop in severe cases (Bashir & Malik, 1988). The fungus infects the seedling, root, stem or pods producing small black sclerotia which are liberated in soil upon tissue decomposition or during tillage operation (Cook et al., 1973).
