Summary

  1. 1.

    Effect of aseptic aeration on growth and sporulation of the three soil fungi,viz., F. vasinfectum, F. moniliforme, andF. udum was studied in detail.

     
  2. 2.

    Speculation ofF. vasinfectum, F. moniliforme andF. udum was optimum at 0·2% nitrate nitrogen in standard Home and Mitter’s liquid medium.

     
  3. 3.

    Aeration stimulated mycelial growth (on both dry and ash weight basis) but inhibited sporulation (quantitatively determined).

     
  4. 4.

    Aeration had no direct effect on the pH of the culture medium.

     
  5. 5.

    Sporulation decreased with increasing hours of aeration.
