Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA) with Streptomycin (100mg/L)

This medium is recommended for the detection and enumeration of yeasts and fungi in a variety of sample types. The low pH (5.6) and addition of streptomycin will ensure that the growth of most bacterial species is inhibited and the low mineral content ensures good pigment production by fungi where appropriate.
