When paperboard made from used paper was supported by Trichoderma reesei NBRC31137, a cellulolytic basidiomyces, the weight decrease of the paperboard in soil was enhanced. Number of viable microorganisms around the paperboard in the soil increased and reached 10 7 after 2 weeks. Nutritional medium by itself, constituted of yeast extract and peptone, also stimulated the degradation in soil. Cells of T. viride NBRC31326 and Trichoderma reesei NBRC 31327 were less effective. These results suggested that we could control biodegradation rare of cellulosic material in an agricultural field.
