The soil samples were isolated from the paddy soils of Jenbagapuram Village, Thanjavur Dt. Totally 42 species belonged to 20 genera were reported. Out of 42 species, the Deuteromycetes were represented as dominant group (35 species), followed by Phycomycetes (3 species), Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes (each one species) and sterile mycelium (2 species). The physico chemical properties of the soil such as pH (5.6 to 8.06) , electrical conductivity (0.01 to 0.37 ), cation exchange capacity (19.02 to 26.30 ), organic carbon (0.4 to 0.45), available nitrogen (80.6 to 118.02 ), available phosphorus (4.3 to 7.5) , available potassium (77.0 to 125.0), available zinc (0.02 to 0.84), available iron (2.2 to 5.29), available copper (0.20 to 0.92), available manganese (2.02 to 0.84), calcium (8.40 to 12.6), magnesium (2.6 to 9.20) and sodium (0.12 to1.25) were analysed and they were statistically significant. The correlation co-efficient studies were carried out between soil fungi and physico chemical characters.
