Abstract:

Soil microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi play an important role in soil fertility and promoting plant health. Eight Rhizosphere soil samples of different tomato crop fields form four districts of Tamilnadu were investigated for diversity of fungi. The mycoflora were isolated by using soil dilution Plate technique on Potato Dextrose agar medium supplemented with 1% Streptomycin. Identification and characterization of mycoflora were done with the help of Manuals of fungi. A total of 16 species belonging to 6 genera of fungi were isolated. The most common among them viz; Aspergillus, Penicillium and Mucor were predominant genera. Curvularia, Rhizopus and Trichoderma was isolated and characterized.


Keywords: Bacteria, Fungi, Rhizosphere, Tomato and Streptomycin.
