Two fold serial dilution of each stock was poured to the plates having mineral salt agar media (0.2g NaNO3, 0.05g KCl, 0.05g MgSO4, 0.02g K2HPO4, 0.01g FeSO4, 1g pectin and 2g of agar/100mL) aseptically.
hamatum was inoculated into shake cultures in a 1 liter flask containing 300 ml of Czapek-Dox broth + 1% peptone (CZP, composed of peptone 0.5%, NaNO3 0.2%, K2HPO4 0.1%, MgSO4*7H2O 0.05%, KCl 0.05%, FeSO4*7H2O 0.001%, sucrose 3% (w/v)) and incubated with aeration (180 rpm) at 26+-1AdegC for 3 days for the production of the seed inoculum.

Czapek Dox medium was used for testing enzyme production by the studied fungi which contained the following ingredients [2g NaNO3, 1g [K.sub.2]HP[O.sub.4], 0.5gMgS[O.sub.4], 0.5g KCl, and 0.01gFeS[O.sub.4] (initial pH was adjusted to 6.5 [+ or -] 0.2 at 25[degrees]C)] per 1L distilled [H.sub.2]O.
Solution A was prepared by dissolving 20g of sodium nitrate (NaNO3), 5g of potassium chloride (KCL), 5gm of Epsom salt (MgSO4.7H2O and 0.1g of Ferrous sulfate heptahydrate (FeSO4.7H2O) in 500mL of distilled water.
Experiments were carried out in Erlenmeyer flasks(250mL) containing 50mL of inorganic broth (1g KH2PO4, 1g NaNO3, 0.5g MgSO4.7H2O and 0.01g FeSO4).
