This study aimed to investigate the effect of rice seed treatment with Talaromyces flavus Bodhi001, Talaromyces trachyspermus Bodhi002, Talaromyces flavus Bodhi003, Neosartorya fischeri Bodhi004, Eupenicillium sp. and Gongronella butleri on seed germination and seedling growth of KDML 105 rice at 7 and 14 days after sowing (DAS) in vitro conditions. The experiment was arranged by completely randomized design (CRD). The result showed that seed treatment with N. fischeri Bodhi004 significantly (p < 0.05) increased fresh weight and dry weight of both shoot and root at 7 DAS. The fresh and dry root weights were 1.29 and 0.14 g, respectively. However, the seed treatment with N. fischeri Bodhi004 increased root length, shoot height, fresh weight of shoot and seedling vigour index, when compared with those of the control at 14 DAS. This study demonstrated that the N. fischeri Bodhi004 has the potential to be used as an alternative agent to enhance rice seedling and to increase qualitative yields of rice.
