Abstract :

Fungal communities associated with soil play an important role in nutrient cycle, supporting plant growth and the biocontrol of plant diseases. This paper has analysed the effect of organic and inorganic inputs on soil mycoflora population and species diversity in Wheat of student’s farm of Khalsa College, Amritsar and a comparative study between these locations. Identification and characterization was done by the help of standard protocols. All total 26 numbers of fungal species have observed during the studies. The Aspergillus shows as the dominant mycoflora in both the location. Six species have found in Aspergillus group i.e. A. niger, A. fumigatus, A. japonicus and A. clavatus. In all locations almost same fungal species were found, but vary in their percentage of occurrence.
