Influence of media, temperatures and pH on the growth and sporulation of Aspergillus niger


Author(s): DB Sheth, PR Patel and RK Patil

Abstract: Highest radial growth and dry weight of A. niger was obtained on Malt extract, Corn meal, and Oat meal agar (90.00 mm) and Czapek’s broth (361.62 mg) with excellent sporulation. The 300C temperature found best for the mycelial growth (90.00 mm) and sporulation of A. niger on PDA. The pH 6 found most suitable for the mycelial growth (86.05 mm & 262.05 mg) and sporulation in solid and liquid potato dextrose broth media, respectively.
