The growth of a strain of Penicillium javanicum on pretreated rice husk was studied by batchwise fermentation in shake flasks. The rice husk was pretreated with various concentrations of acids/alkalis and enzyme. It was observed that the growth on perchloric acid treated rice husk was higher. However nitrogen and protein content was found higher in fungal biomass when sulphuric acid treated rice husk was used as a substrate for the growth of Penicillium javanicum.

Keywords: Penicillium javanicum, rice husk, single cell protein
