The nature of growth of tilamentous fungi on solid substrates renders the estimation of biomass during the course of solid state fermentation difficu’h. The changing colour of the substrate during the growth of the microorganism can be quantified by light reflectance measurements. The experiments reported in the present paper indicate the potential of using this method for monitoring biomass in the presence of solid substrates.
