Qualitative and quantitative distributions of microfungal flora of the some greenhouse soils in the vicinity of Lapseki, Canakkale were studied. A total of 25 soil samples were collected from 10 cm depth in five greenhouses. Using soil dilution technique, 128 different microfungal isolates were obtained Isolates collected belonged to Oomycetes (1), Zygomycetes (7), Ascomycetes (9) and 96 belonging to the Deliteromycetes Fifteen isolates were classified as Mycelia Sterilia. The genera of microfungi most abundant in the greenhouse soils were Aspergillus, Penicillium, Geomyces, Exophiala and Fusarium. Qualitative and quantitative distributions of the Aspergillus were higher than those of the other genera. It was found that the maximum value was in greenhouse 5 and the minimum value was in greenhouse 4. The solarization method was the most effective in reducing fungal numbers.
