A field experiment was carried out to isolate and identify fungi present in rice husk amended plots which are capable of remediating heavy metal contaminated soil of Asa River. Randomized Complete Block design in factorial arrangement was adopted using Rice Husk at five levels i.e control, 10t/ha, 15t/ha, 10t/ha+NPK120KgN, 15t/ha+NPK120KgN having three (3) replicates. Soil samples collected before and after planting were analysed for heavy metals (Mn, Fe, Pb, Zn, Cu, Co, Ni, Cr, Cd) using Atomic Adsorption Spectrophotometer. Result obtained showed that rice husk was effective in bioremediation of Asa River sediment with a reduction of 98.66% and varied in the order of: Mn>Fe>Pb>Zn>Cu>Co>Ni>Cr>Cd. Fourteen (14) metal resistant Fungi were identified from rice husk amended plots i.e A. flavus, A. niger, P. notatum, T. viride, F. oxysporum, A. sydowii, P. digitatum, A. carbonarius, A. fumigates and P. purourogenum been the dominant specie.
