Abstract: Present studies were carried out at Jalgaon district from July 2016 to Dec. 2016 in two intervals. Soil samples were collected from different location of banana crop field’s. Rhizosphere soil mycoflora were isolated by two methods i.e. soil dilution method and soil plate method on PDA and CZA medium. The fungi were identified and characterized with the help of authentic manuals (Barnet H.L. January 1972). Total ten species belongs to seven genera were recorded from different banana fields. The most common mycoflora are Aspergillus niger, Fusarium oxysporum, Fusarium monaliforma, Aspergillus flavus, Cladosporium musa, Curvularia lunata, Verticillium sp, Aspergillus nidulance, Alternaria alternata, phytophthora sp.(Figure-2) Fungal diversity of Rhizosphere soil depends on physicochemical factors and growth of crops. The percent contributions of soil mycoflora were analyzed.
