considering that little is known about the occurrence of phosphate-solubilizing fungi from areas cultivated with melon, the phosphate solubilization ability of filamentous fungi isolated in these areas was evaluated. three hundred and eighteen filamentous fungal isolates belonging to 23 genera were evaluated, besides aphyllophorales and mycelia sterilia. from those, 52 were able to solubilize p: aphyllophorales (2), aspergillus (34), penicillium (10) and rhizopus (6). these results will contribute to subsidizing further research regarding the capacity of these fungi to solubilize other sources of phosphate applied to the melon crop, as well as indicate the need for a screening program to select those with higher capacity and potential for solubilization.
