In the present study attempts have been made on the isolation and identification of fungi in order to study the mycoflora responsible to reduce the seed quality, longevity and vigor in the pulse of Hyacinth bean. Lablab purpureus L. is an annual plant that grows in poorly - drained soils belongs to the family Fabaceae. It contains high amount of protein, vitamins and minerals. Fungal cultures were isolated by using blotter and agar plate methods.22 fungal species and 14 genera were isolated. Aspergillus spp, Alternaria spp, Curvularia spp, Fusarium spp, Rhizopus spp, Mucor spp were dominant species. These species were found that they cause considerable amount of loss, spoilage of storage grains and also produce mycotoxins.
