Keywords: Soil, Communities, Fungi, Bacteria, Shastripuram, Agra


Soil contains many bacteria, fungi, algae, small plants, insects etc. The composition of the bacterial communities was closely defined by soil pH; there was as much variability in bacterial community composition across the 180-m distance of this liming experiment as across soils in this garden. The highest plate count of garden soil sample was bacteria such has Bacillus, &Pseudomonas,was dominating and fungi such as Cladosporium, & A.flavus were dominating of samples which were incubated at 20°C. The diversity of the total bacterial and fungal community was Streptococcus, Actinomycetes and S.pyogenes, S.coelicolor. Progressively lower counts were obtained in fungi as compared to bacteria in the garden samples of Shastripuram, Agra.
