In order to check the rate of biological degradation and biochemical changes of bagasse by saprophytic fungi, further processes on sugarcane bagasse were done. To find out fungi responsible for biodegradation we isolated 24 fungi on PDA from sugarcane bagasse, among them 10 dominant fungi were selected for further processes by standard methods. Degradation was estimated after three intervals of every 15 days. We found that the fungi namely Aspersgillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium dimerum, Alternaria alterneta, are responsible for quick and faster biodegradation and fungi namely, Alternaria dainthe, Fusarium semitectum, Penicillium citrinum, Penicillium olivicolor, Trichoderma harzianum, Trichoderma atroviride are noted for average biodegradation. Results were observed in the variation of 15, 30, 45 days. The maximum degradation was observed in 45 days.
