Cellulomonas flavigena (strain NIAB 441) produced cellulase and hemicellulase activities when grown on Leptochloa fusca L. Kunth (Kallar grass), found to be the best inducer for enzyme production. The enzyme possessed the potential to saccharify bagasse, Kallar grass straw, wheat straw, carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and xylan to reducing sugars.
