The objective of this research was to identify the most influential media and species of Arbuscula Mycorrhiza Fungi (AMF) on its inoculant production. The research was conducted in five months starting from March to July 2017 in Dukuhwaluh, Kembaran Sub-district of Banyumas Regency with altitude of about 84 meters above sea level. Planting was done on soil and sand media in polybags. This research was arranged by Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The tested factors consisting of two: the first was media (M); it was M1 (soil) and M2 (sand), and the second one was Arbuskula Mycorrhiza Fungi species (S) as of S1 (Glomus etunicatum), S2 (Glomus fasciculatum), S3 (Glomus mosseae), S4 (Glomus aggregate), and S5 (Glomus intradices). Combining treatment was repeated three times, and in each treatment consisted of four polybags, therefore, the total number of treatments were 120 polybags. The variables observed were percentage of myshelia root, number of spores. Preliminary test of Brassica juncea L. growth included plant height, leaf number, wet weight and dry weight of plant. The data obtained were analyzed by F test in 5% level. If in the test show the real effect then continued with the test of the Least Significant Different at the level of 5%. It can be concluded that the soil was the most influential media on AMF inoculant production, whereas Glomus etunicatum species was the best AMF inoculant in its inoculant production. The research also found that the sand media with Glomus mosseae was the best combination in AMF inoculant production.
