Endoglucanase is one of the most important industrial enzymes. In the present study, three different fungi Aspergillus sp., Trichoderma sp. and Penicillium sp. were isolation for endoglucanase production from soil samples on PDA plate. All three fungus processed by submerged fermentation and solid state fermentation for its enzymatic activity. Aspergillus sp., showed highest enzymatic activity in both type of fermentation. In solid state fermentation using sawdust, corncob and wheat bran substrate, all three fungus give highest enzyme activity in corncob substrate as compared to sawdust and wheat bran substrate. The optimization of endoglucanase activity of Aspergillus sp., Trichoderma sp. and Penicillium sp. with different parameter like pH, temperature, carbon source, nitrogen source, CMC concentration and incubation period. Aspergillus sp. give maximum endo-ß-glucanase activity at pH 3, 28oC temperature, corn starch as a carbon source, sodium nitrate as a nitrogen source, 1.5% CMC concentration and 6 days incubation period.
