This paper describes the effects of the fungicide Bavastin, on mycorrihizal development in various crop plants. An attempt was made to establish the inhibitory effect of the fungicide on the net DNA and Protein content of VAM isolated from the rhizosphere soil of plants which were treated with the fungicide. Physio chemical nature of the soil was studied to evaluate of nutrient percentage of different soil samples collected. The techniques included isolation, Identification of VAM and extraction and finding DNA ratio 260/280. The highest DNA yield 46ng was found with MNJII soil sample collected from farm lands of pochampalley, Warangal District. In our investigation we identified three different genus from the soil samples collected they are Glomus, Gigaspora and Acaulospora. The highest protein content 85.3 was observed with samples collected from village pochampalley. The present study concludes that Bavestin exhibited the hazardous effects on VAM growth and directly influence the concentration of DNA and Protein.
Keywords: Bavastin, Glomus, Gigaspora and Acaulospora.
