"The fungal isolate was obtained in pure culture by using standard techniques. The fungal isolate was identified with the help of photomicrograph taken. The isolate from agricultural soil was identified as Aspergillus allhabadii, filamentous fungus belonging to the phyla Ascomycota. The key features of the fungus were: Colonies on CZA grow rather restrictedly with loose aerial hyphae, at first white becoming glaucous-blue conidia heads, radiate, becoming definitely columnar, vesicles ovoid, sterigmata in two series, conidia globose, smooth â walled, colonies in white heads but appearing pale blue green in mass. The cultural and sporulating structure of the isolates was shown in. Further, the fungus was deposited to IMTECH for the identification and characterization and they confirmed the identity of the fungus with MTCC number, Aspergillus allhabadii MTCC 9988. Aspergillus species are well adapted to polluted soil and water and are frequently isolated from effluents and dye contaminated soils.
