Activities of cellulase of twenty strains of Fusarium verticillioides isolated from different sources were studied by means of three types of plate assays (CMC-plate, cup-plate, AZCL-plate). Strains were cultivated in CMC— liquid media and culture filtrates were used as source of cellulase. All the isolates studied were able to produce the cellulase activity, however, marked differences were observed in the rate of cellulase production. AZCL-plate assay is simple and very suitable for screening many isolates at the same time.
