Abstract—Celosia argentea L. a local weed common in rain fed crop plants of Andhra Pradesh. Microbial association with decomposition was studied in the semi arid fields of Chittoor District. Microbial succession on the stems of Celosia argentea L in soil at different time intervals was carried out in laboratory conditions by serial dilution methods. Soil extracts Agar media and Martin Rose Bengal Agar media were used to isolate and enumerate the bacteria and fungi from the stem bits. After one month of immersion of the stem (4 cm ¡Á 0.5 cm) in the soil, Aspergillus niger, Fusarium oxysporum were isolated. Aspergillus niger, Bacillus subtilis, Curvularia lunara, Fusarium oxysporum, Penicillium notatum , and Rhizopus nigricans were continued to grow around the stem bits after six months and caused complete degradation of the stem bits. The stem got crushed due to mycological succession.
