One hundred and eleven yeast strains were isolated from 60 agricultural soil samples. The samples were taken from four various fields located in the southwest of Slovakia. Cryptococcus laurentii, Candida maltosa, Metschnikowia pulcherrima, and Sporobolomyces salmonicolor were the predominant species in the samples collected from all four types of fields. These species represented 78.4–86.6% of the total yeast counts. 
Characterization of yeast in hapludands soil with biotechnological potential
Yeasts play an important role in nature, and soil is one of the largest reservoirs of yeasts, and yeast strains isolated from southern Chilean volcanic ash soil have the potential to be used as biofertilizers.
Yeast biodiversity in the guts of several pests on maize; comparison of three methods: classical isolation, cloning and DGGE
The yeast biodiversity in the guts of several pests on maize from two isolation sources was assessed by cultivation-dependent and cultivation-independent methods, finding 21 different partial sequence types of the 26S rRNA gene which could be assigned to 10 different genera.

Diversity and relationships among strains of culturable yeasts in agricultural soils in Cameroon
The results suggest that Cameroon contains significant yeast diversity and that gene flow is common among local and regional soil yeast populations.
CULTIVO DE CEPAS DE LEVADURAS DE SUELO TRUMAO ENVINAZAª (Cultivation of yeast strains of the trumao soil invinasseª)
Thirty strains of yeast isolated from a volcanic ash soil (Hapludans), used as pasture rotation, were individually cultured and found to be compatible with conventional yeasts.
Diversity of yeasts in the soil adjacent to fruit trees of the Rosaceae family
Diversity of yeasts isolated from the soil adjacent to five fruit trees in two localities in Slovakia in four sampling periods demonstrated differences in the species richness and evenness among the yeast populations.
Yeasts of the soil – obscure but precious
A review of soilYeasts in undisturbed or low‐managed biotopes to encourage researchers, both biologists and soil scientists, to include soil yeasts in future studies.
Isolation and characterization of yeasts associated with plants growing in heavy-metal- and arsenic-contaminated soils.
This is the first study on the abundance and identification of rhizosphere yeasts in a heavy-metal- and arsenic-contaminated soil, and of the reduction of arsenate by the species C. albidus.
Yeasts in Agricultural and Managed Soils
All managed soils (agricultural soil, orchard soil, vineyard soil, pasture soil) are exposed to human intervention. These include regular tillage, crop or plant seeding, harvesting and the
