The extracellular L-asparaginase production by fungi isolated from soil samples by using pH and dye based method. Various physical and chemical parameters were optimized under submerged fermentation for L-asparaginase production. Maximum productivity of L-asparaginase (19.5 U/ml) was achieved by employing medium containing 2% (w/v) L-asparagine as substrate concentration, 1%(w/v) glucose as carbon source, 1% (w/v) ammonium sulphate as an additional nitrogen source with the incubation period of 96 h and incubation temperature at 30oC, initial pH 6.5 at an inoculum level 20% (v/v) with 48 h old inoculum was found to be optimum for maximum yield.
