Out of these components fungal components are considered for study about their effect on vegetables and health of workers and other people in vegetable market. Rotorod sampler was used for study of biocomponents from vegetable market. Investigation was carried during July, 2016-December, 2017. Total 50 spore types were recorded from vegetable market during the investigation from which Aspergillus (15.98%) was the most frequent and predominant, Alternaria (9.13%), Cladosporium (9.03%), Rhizopus (8.27%), and Nigrospora (8.06%), spores were also inabundance.
