Abstract

The addition of inoculum on the composting process is one of the topics widely studied by scientists. Therefore, construction of inoculum composition of fungal decomposer able to initiate and enhance the composting process is very interesting to study and this research was dealt with this matter. Compost is mostly used for acid dry soil in several plantation in Indonesia. Therefore preparing inoculum in an acid medium to understand their productivity is very important. The purpose of this research is to understand the influence of acid rice media on the production of inoculums including spore production and their viability of A. tubingensis, a xylanolitic fungus. The research was designed in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with three replicates. The treatment is the acidity of the media consisting of pH 3.0, 3.4, 4.0, 4.4, 5.0, 5.4, and 6.0. The variables measured are number of spores and the Colony Forming Unit (CFU). The result showed that the production of spores of A. tubingensis and their viability are optimum at pH 6.0 with 4.63 x 104 spores / ml and 3.0 x108 CFU / ml respectively.
