Abstract: This study aims to obtain the best inoculum dose and fermentation duration of Tithonia diversifolia plant with Aspergillus ficuum as poultry feed source of high carotenoid vegetable protein. This research is an experimental research in laboratory using complete randomized design (RAL) factorial pattern with 3 treatments and 3 replications. The parameters are dry matter, crude protein, crude fiber, fitase enzyme activity and cellulase enzyme activity. The results of the research diversity analysis showed significant effect (P>0.05) on dry matter content, and crude protein, but significantly (P<0.05) on crude fiber content, fitase enzyme activity and cellulase enzyme activity. This research can be concluded the best inoculum dose and duration of fermentation in A3B2 treatment (10% inoculum dose and 7 days fermentation duration). In this condition dry matter 37, 32%, crude protein 30, 73%, crude fiber 14,78%, activity of enzyme fitase 5,303 U/ml, and cellulase enzyme activity 3,303 U / ml.
