Abstract:

The study of cultural and morphological characters of six isolates of entomopathogenic fungi isolated from organic environment of Durg District of Chhattisgarh namely; Fusarium sp. strain FW24, Rhizopus oryzae, Metarhizium majus and Trichoderma harzianum as well as from naturally infected ticks namely; Aspergillus amstelodami and Fusarium beomiforme was conducted. The study of macroscopic cultural characters of Fusarium sp. strain FW24 and Rhizopus oryzae, Fusarium beomiforme showed abundant cottony luxuriant, fluffy, raised and suppressed mycelium, white colony colour whereas the reverse colony colour was light yellow to peach violet. Rhizopus oryzae showed blackish grey colony colour whereas the reverse colony colour was observed as reddish brown. Trichoderma harzianum isolates were observed as diffused, luxuriant and suppressed mycelium with green colony colour and yellowish brown reverse colony colour. Aspergillus amstelodami isolates were noted as thick luxuriant, suppressed and folded mycelium with yellowish green colony colour and brownish red reverse colony colour. The cultural appearances of Metarhizium majus was smooth, diffused, luxuriant and suppressed mycelium with green colony colour which were turned in olive green after maturation and yellowish brown reverse colony colour. The length of hyphae of all EPF varies from 200 to 400 um, macrocondia varies from 12-150 um x 3.2-18um in length x width. Size of microconidia ranges from 3.5-9um x 1.90-4.5um in length x width.
