A normal observation in solid state fermentation (SSF) is uneven growth on fermented substrate. This situation will usually result in unsatisfied outcome. Therefore, a proper technique for inoculum transfer prior to the start of the fermentation process was developed in this study to prepare inoculum transfers for the inoculation process into solid substrates. This was done to make sure the spore inoculum distributed homogenously into all solid particles before the fermentation was started. Three (3) techniques of inoculum transfer were tested in SSF using wheat bran as a model solid substrate while Aspergillus awamori was used as a model microorganism. Technique 1: the spore suspension was transferred into the center of the solid substrate over the solid surface; Technique 2: the spore... suspension was distributed on the surface of solid substrate randomly and Technique 3: the spore suspension was distributed on the surface of solid substrate followed by homogenously mixed with spatula to form uniformly on the solid substrate. Fungal growth, spores and enzymes production (glucoamylase, protease, xylanase and cellulose) showed the highest values obtained with Technique 3 followed by Technique 2 and Technique 1. This study provides an idea of how important such parameter as inoculum transfer influence the growth performance of fungi during the SSF process. The choice of inoculum transfer technique had the greatest overall impact on the growth and most important targeted productivity of product. Such information enables the design of a better homogenous distribute of microorganisms into the whole solid substrate fermented bed.
