Neutral pion (pi(0)) production is calculated in a leading order (LO) perturbative QCD-based model in pp and dAu collisions at root s = 200 AGeV at midrapidity. The model includes transverse component of the initial parton distribution. We compare our results for pp collision to experimental data at RHIC energy. We repeat our calculation for the dAu collision and investigate the interplay between shadowing and multiple scattering. In central dAu collisions the influence of possible jet energy loss in cold nuclear matter in discussed and numerical results are presented.
