STUDIES ON CERTAIN ECOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF SOIL FUNGI- IX

Mycoflora of cultivated dhusi (sandy loam) soil kept at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80 percent moisture levels has been studied. By increasing the moisture status of the soil up to 30 per cent, the fungal population of the soil increased and then decreased onwards till 80 per cent moisture where the lowest population both in quality and quantity was obtained every time. Except for 20 per cent set, population decreased gradually on succeeding sampling dates. The bacterial population, on the other hand, increased with increasing moisture status from 10-80 percent. The waterlogging conditions at the higher moisture status (40-80 per cent) possibly reduced the aeration and favoured the growth of bacteria which may be held responsible for the low fungi with highly moistened soils.
