Fungi associated with seeds of eight varieties of rice collected from Bongor locality in Chad, were detected using blotter paper and agar plate methods. The fungi were isolated from rice seeds and identified based on their typical structure and basic characteristics. Twelve fungi species were isolated and identified with blotter paper methods while twenty three were identified using agar plate method. These findings revealed the presence of diverse fungi species associated with rice seeds varieties. Further research on the economic importance of these seed borne fungi with regards to seed germination and seedling infection resulting from these fungi is thus recommended. Furthermore, this study, although considered as preliminary, suggests that the fungi detected could be potential threat to rice production and a source of reflection of the possible diseases that could interfere with rice cultivation in Chad.
