Abstract:

Present investigation emphasizes on isolation and identification of soil fungi of banana (Musa paradisiaca L.) fields from Baramati area of Pune district of Maharashtra. The isolation of soil fungi was done by using serial dilution method and Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA) medium. Morphological characters of fungi were used for their identification. Total 22 fungal species were recorded throughout the study. The contribution of Deuteromycotina was 63.63% followed by Zygomycotina 18.18%, Ascomycotina 13.63% and Mastigomycotina 4.54%. During the study Aspergillus, Rhizopus, Trichoderma, Mucor, Alternaria, Curvularia, Fusarium, Penicillium and Rhizoctonia were noticed as predominant genera and Pythium, Chaetomium, Botrytis, Cladosporium, Drechslera, Helminthosporium and Nigrospora were found intermittently.
