Abstract

Streptomycetes are found to be the most predominant microflora among Actinomycetes population in organic soil. Many of them produce economically valuable compounds like antimicrobial agents, enzymes, etc. In this study Actinomycetes was isolated for their diversity from soil and screened Streptomycetes for antimicrobial activities against bacteria and fungi were studied. Most of the isolates obtained from the soil possess antifungal activity against Aspergillus, Penicilliiim, Rhizopus, Dreschleria, Cryptococcus and Candida but had no effect against bacteria.
