Abstract: Low quality jute bark, after treatment with a fungal culture of Penicillium corylophilum, showed improvement in fibre quality viz. strength and fineness and enhanced processability of the yarn at mill level. Conventional potato dextrose broth (PDB) was used for large-scale production of the fungus for application on barky jute at the jute mill. But, the process has several limitations like non-uniform growth of fungus and high cost for labour and energy inputs as well as for substrate. To overcome the limitations, the fungus was produced using rice husk, a cheap agro-residue, as substrate. Rice husk as substrate provided good and uniform growth of fungus, which sustained for at least 90 days. The fungus produced on rice husk has been used successfully for processing of low quality jute fibre in jute mills. There was overall improvement in spinning parameter due to application of the culture.
