Abstract

Concentration of airborne fungal spores in a vegetable market environment was examined to provide basic information needed. Exposed petriplate method was used to obtain quantitative and qualitative estimation respectively. Analysis for a period of one year revealed as many as 16 types of fungal colonies. Aspergillus sp. was most frequent and predominant genus detected, Penicillium sp. and Alternaria sp. spores were also abundant, which are well known allergenic and pathogenic. High concentration of airborne spores was recorded in January followed by December, February and November. Maximum contribution of the fungal flora was observed by Aspergillus niger followed by, Aspergillus sulfurous, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus fumigatus, Penicillium citrinum, Aspergillus sydowii, Aspergillus terreus, Alternaria alternata, Fusarium oxysporium, Penicillium funiculosum, Penicillium sp., Rhizopus sp., Sporotrichum sp., Aspergillus luchensis, Penicillium sp., (Gray Col) and Penicillium sp., (Blue Col).  The fungal colony counts showed Aspergillus niger dominant and Alternaria alternata co-dominant taxa. The study showed a common representation of many fungi both in the ambient air over the vegetable market and their occurrence on disease in vegetables. There was a definite relationship between aero-mycoflora of vegetable market and market diseases.
