Abstract:
In order to determine the best solid medium for growth and sporulation of C.carpophilum, the fungus was grown on five different media viz., corn meal agar, Czapek’s dox agar, oat meal agar, potato dextrose agar, and Richard’s synthetic agar.It indicates that the fungus C. carpophilum grows best on potato dextrose agar medium with a maximum colony diameter of 19.50 mm followed by oat meal agar (18.75 mm) andbest sporulation on potato dextrose agar (1.15×106/ml)The fungus under study was able to grow on wide range of temperature. However, maximum colony diameter of 20.0 mm was observed at 25oC which was statistically at par with colony diameter of 19.50mm and 18.25mm observed at 20 and 30oC respectively and best sporulation was produced at 25oC (1.20×106/ml). The fungus under study grew throughout the pH range of 4.5 to 8.5. However, maximum colony diameter of 19.25 mm and best sporulation of 1.18×106/ml was recorded at pH 5.5.
