In this present investigation three fungal species namely Rhizopus stolonifer, Penicilium sp Verticillium verticillate were isolated from the ripened Jack fruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) pulp waste and their cellulase producing ability was screened on Carboxy methyl cellulase agar. Of the three isolates, Rhizopus stolonifer showed maximum cellulase activity. The enzyme production by Rhizopus stolonifer was assayed and the optimum pH, incubation period, temperature, nitrogen source, carbon source were standardized. The fermentation experiments were studied in solid state fermentation (SSF).
