Studies on the phylloplane micro flora of safflower revealed that the bacterial population was
more than the fungal population in both the varieties at various growth stages of crop. The mean
fungal population was highest at flowering stage (5.32 x 102/cm2 leaf area) whereas the bacterial
population was more at the stage of physiological maturity (32.15 x 102/cm2 leaf area). Fungal
and bacterial populations were highest on phylloplane of variety ‘Bhima’.
