Nine and thirteen fungi were isolated from blotter and agar plate method respectively from test oil seeds like Groundnut, Mustard, Safflower, Sesame and Sunflower . The association of Aspergillus niger and Fusarium dimerum is found maximum in ground nut and mustard respectively from blotter plate method and the maximum incidence of Aspergillus niger is observed in mustard, ground nut and sunflower from agar plate method. The effect of different carbohydrate sources on production of protease and lipase was studied. The four carbohydrate sources were tested with five fungi which were isolated from different oil seeds. The activity of protease enzyme is observed maximum in presence of sucrose by Aspergillus niger and Fusarium dimerum. Curvularia lunata and Fusarium dimerum had the maximum activity in presence of xylose. The maximum lipase production was found in Curvularia lunata and Fusarium oxysporum in presence of maltose and Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus ustus in presence of sucrose.
