Abstract

Phosphorus (P) is one of the most essential macro-elements required for growth and development of plants (including photosynthesis, energy and sugar production). A greater part of P is present in the insoluble form and therefore, cannot be taken up by plants. The deficiency of P in turn severely restricts growth and yields in plants. Aspergillus species, a soil isolate had excellent potential to solubilize phosphate in vitro. In present study fungal strains isolated from soil having potential to solubilize phosphate were characterized. Fungal isolates were characterized as Aspergillus Sp. and Penicillium Sp. Both the isolates were identified by cultural and microscopic examination and are capable of phosphate solubilization.
