A simple technique for inducing mass sporulation and for the study of morphological characters of fruiting structures in a number of seed-borne fungi has been worked out. Young cultures are grown on autoclaved leaves of Pennisetum glaucum (pearl millet) planted on the surface of water agar plates. Sporulation of a wide range of fungi was observed within a short period of incubation. The extent of sporulation was enhanced by incubating the cultures under near u.v. radiation but different fungi showed diverse requirements for initiation of sporulation. The advantage of the technique for mass sporulation of different fungi and its application are discussed.
