Increased urbanization and industrialization in recent time has made a significant impact on air quality of the area. The atmosphere is rich in propagule of different fungal species. The investigation on airborne Aspergillus contribution was conducted in Periphery of Raipur city from February, 2018 to March, 2019 with the help of gravity petriplate containing PDA (Potato Dextrose Agar) medium. In this study, total 11 species of Aspergillus were recorded. The percentage frequency and percentage contribution of different Aspergillus species were different in different seasons. Aspergillus niger was most frequent throughout the year followed by Aspergillus fumigatus, A. flavus, and A. nidulans etc. While Aspergillus clavatus, and A. versicolor, A. aculeatus were the least frequent species. The result indicated the highest percentage contribution of Aspergillus niger (43.29 percent) followed by A. fumigatus (9.02percent), A. flavus (8.42 percent) while A. clavatus (0.21 percent). The objective of the studies was to determine a seasonal variation in concentrations of Aspergillus on the basis of meteorological parameters.
