An investigation was carried out to standardize the concentration of Aspergillus flavus inoculation on seed germination for fixing inoculum threshold level. The treatments consisted of 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 % infection was made artificially on groundnut kernels and the performance was evaluated with control. The results indicated that upto 1 % infection the seeds maintained their germination above IMSCS (70 %). Beyond this level germination falls down.
