Studies on the incidence the caraway seeds for pathogen infestation and test the pathogenicity of isolated fungi to caraway seedlings were carried out. A total of 383 fungi were isolated from seeds with evident symptoms of disease and without symptoms of disease. In this case a complex of different pathogens was isolated, among which Alternaria, Fusarium and Epicoccum were predominant. Pathogenicity assay on caraway seedlings was performed using isolates originating from caraway seeds. All tested fungi showed a very high aggressiveness in pathogenicity test.Keywords:
