Abstract:

Soil Mycoflora plays a significant role in soil quality, plant productivity and development of effective methods for studying the diversity, distribution, and behavior of microorganisms in soil environment is essential for a broader understanding of soil health. The soil samples were collected from agricultural fields of Arachis hypogaea L. Gossypium hirsutum L. and Zea mays L. in three different locations from Hubli Taluk, Karnataka, India. The fungi from these soil samples were isolated in March 2019 to March 2020. A total of 27 species belongs to 19 genera were isolated these includes two species of Ascomycetes, five species of Zygomycetes and remaining species were Mitosporic Fungi. None of basidiomycetes were isolated from these soils. The Mycoflora were isolated by using soil dilution method on Potato Dextrose agar medium supplemented with antibiotic Streptomycin. The different species belongs to various groups viz; Ascomycetes, Zygomycetes and Mitosporic Fungi were identified with the relevant literature and manuals of fungi. The dominant genera in all the agricultural fields were Aspergillus and Fusarium.
