Soil fungus microflora promotes aggregation and has an important role in the transformation of relatively variable plant nutrient sources such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur and in making them useful for the plant. The effect of soil tillage treatments on soil fungus microflora is not fully known. This study was carried out in semi-arid climatic conditions in Diyarbakır in order to investigate the effectiveness of conventional tillage, reduced tillage and direct seeding practices on soil fungus microflora in the 2016-2017 winter wheat cultivation period. Soil samples taken from the rhizosphere of the wheat plant were transferred to nutrient agar and potato dextrose agar medium after dilution in order to determine the changes in the number of soil fungi in detail during the sowing time and flag leaf phenological period. As a result of the study, it was determined that different tillage practices do not make a statistical difference on the soil fungus microflora. However, unlike the soil samples taken in sowing period, it was determined that the number of fungi increased significantly in the parcels subjected to direct seeding during the flag leaf phenological period.
