Agarwood is economical important non forest timber product. The objective of thisÂ research was to obtain fungi that have ability to effectively infect and form agarwood.The fungi were isolated and selected from agarwood for effective infection studies.TenÂ isolates were successfully isolated, they were belonging to Aspergillus (JG5, JG17,KT17, JG31, JG32, JG21, JG19), Penicillium (JG4), Fusarium (JG12, JG18). FourÂ isolates were successful form effective infection and they identified as Aspergillus spÂ JG17, Aspergillus sp JG31, Aspergillus sp JG32 and Fusarium sp JG12. They producedÂ secondary metabolite. The Fusarium sp JG12 was the most effective strain producedÂ agarwood and form resin gaharu on Aquilaria beccariana after 4 months inoculation. TheÂ size of agarwood formed was 2,96 cm in length and 0,16 cm wide. It is recommended
to use this strain for effective formation of agarwood.
Key words: isolation, fungi, agarwood, Fusarium
