Abstract:

Agricultural byproducts which are rich in Lignin content can be utilized for Oyster mushroom production, which feed on these substrates for growth and development of mycelium subsequently fruiting bodies to become Edible mushrooms. Here an effort was made to know the productivity of this mushroom on different Agricultural substrates which are easily available locally viz., Ragi straw (Elosiana corakana L), Areca nut husk (Areca catechu), Coconut husk (Cocus nucifera), Fodder Sorghum Straw (Sorghum bicolor), Guinea grass straw(Megathyrsus maximus) and Paddy straw (Oryza sativa) to know the suitability of these materials on the mushroom productivity in local condition through characters like spawn running(days), period of initiation of pin head formation(days), number of fruiting bodies formed(days). The yield of mushroom, Apart from environmental factors, it also mainly depends on the nature of substrate which is being used. It was evident from the study that, Ragi straw has shown significantly higher yield (83.61% BE), Less time for Spawn run (17.61 days) and also less time for pin head formation (21.95 days) at KVK Hirehalli, Tumakuru location during 2015-16 of Karnataka state. This study concluded that Ragi straw is having highest Economic benefit with 3.88 BCR and could be a potential substrate in tumakuru location for oyster mushroom cultivation for economic benefit when compared to all other materials studied and also found less time was taken to colonies this fungus ultimately leading to better productivity of mushroom.
