Abstract:

Fungi are worldwide cultivated for the human consumption and called as mushrooms. Among the cultivated mushroom, Calocybe indica, known as milky mushroom and grown at high temperatures and relative humidity. The present study was undertaken to find out the best suited strain, substrate and supplements to enhance the yield of C. indica. Five strains (CI-1, CI-2, CI-3, CI-4 and CI-5) of C. indica were grown on unexplored locally available differents (wheat, soybean, paddy, sesamum straw and sugarcane bagasses) substrates and 2 organic supplements i.e. rice bran (2% & 5%) and wheat bran (2% and 5%). Among the different substrate, earlier (18.44 days) spawn run and primordial initiation (15.44 days) was obtained from wheat straw and also gave maximum (320.04 g) yield. No spawn run was observed on paddy and sesamum straw. Among, organic supplements, 2% Wheat bran required significantly less time for spawn run (21.12 days) and primordial initiation (11.24days) but higher (373.08 g) yield of C. indica was records in 2% rice bran.
