Atmospheric fungal spore concentration in poultry shed and its relevance to disease incidence



Atmospheric fungal spore concentration in poultry shed and its relevance to disease incidence



Indian Veterinary Journal 63(5): 356-361



The air spora of a poultry shed was studied for 1 yr using a Rotorod air sampler. Analysis revealed 36 spore types of which Cladosporium was dominant (16.02%), followed by Torula (14.97%), Aspergillus (11.24%), Periconia (7.74%) and hyphal fragments (6.06%). An increase in the percentage of hazardous spores such as Aspergillus, Penicillium and Paecilomyces was observed at lower temp. and high humidity conditions.
