Abstract:

In the present research work, a total of 59 species belonging to 19 genera of mycoflora were isolated from papaya field soil at Perumalagaram, Thiruvarur Dt., Tamil Nadu during the months of July 2013 – June 2014. Maximum number of fungal isolates belonged to the class Deuteromycetes (48 species). Ascomycetes (6 species) and Phycomycetes (5 species) occurred in very low frequencies. Among the 19 genera recorded, Aspergillus was the dominant genus followed by Penicillium and Trichoderma in papaya field soil. The physico - chemical characteristics of soil samples were found to affect the distribution and population of fungi.

Keywords: Mycoflora,Papaya field, Deuteromycetes, Physico - chemical characteristics.
