Abstract: Waste management is considered as a major recycling process in the society, thereby helping the biodegradable products into useful nutritive products that can be utilized later in the agriculture. Earthworms excrete vermicast in the form of humus containing macro, micro nutrients, useful soil microbes, fungus, phosphate solubilising microorganisms, phytohormones etc. Earthworms have become an integral part of the agriculturists since they rejuvenate the soil and indirectly taking the societal and waste recycling process and thereby avoiding illegal land filling of the waste generated from various Indian cities. Different fungal representatives present in the soil benefits the plants in various means. The proper supply of the nutrients needed for the plant growth is associated with various fungi. The present research work is aimed to understand the fungal community especially from the vermicompost generated from tendu leaf litter waste from Solapur city, Maharastra through beedi industry.
