ABSTRACT : Several kinds of wild yeasts were isolated and identified from some cereals. A total of twenty six yeast strains were isolated from eleven kinds of cereals. Among twenty six yeast strains, Saccharomyces cerevisiae were five strains and Pseudozyma antarctica were four strains. Five species of Cryptococcus including Cryptococcus magnus were also isolated. Pseudizyma aphidis were isolated from black bean, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Cryptococcus flavescens, Cryptococcus magnus and Hannaella zeae were also isolated from glutinous millet.
