Solid State fermentation is widely applied to produce many enzymes and metabolites mainly from fungi. Multiple substrate (Paddy straw, Sugarcane bagasse, Rice husk and wheat bran) were mixed in different combination. Aspergillus flavus isolated from rhizosphere was inoculated. After incubation, the cellulase concentration was quantified using FPase. The optimum parameter for the production of cellulase was analysed using RSM –CCD. The results were evaluated on 28th day of incubation. R2 value was 0.989, adjusted R2 was 0.9788 and predicted R2 is 0.9505. The quadratic model gave a satisfactory description of the experimental data. Under optimum conditions, a maximum cellulase concentration of 55.43 IU/g was predicted according to the developed model.
