AbstractThis study involved isolation and identification of fungi associated with local chick food in three location in Al-Qadissiya Distract. Results showed the presence of fungi: Aspergillus niger, A. candidus, A. flavus, Penicillium notatum. P. italicum, Fusarium oxysporum, Alterneria alternata, curvularia lunata and Rhizopus stolonifer. A. niger was farther of fungi frequency in sterile grains also Rhizopus stolonifer was the farther frequency in non sterile grains and dust of food. The relative humidity in food were 11.6-15.2% A.flavus was more active to produce aflatoxins production but A. niger and other fungi isolates had low ability in different temperature or media.
