Abstract:

Three varieties of milky mushroom viz., APK2, Bheema and IIHR Ca-1 were assessed for its performance in Kanyakumari district as on farm testing in five milky mushroom growers farm. The days for spawn run ranged from 14to 19 days. Morphometric data indicates a wide variation in the sporophore weight (88g-175g), pileus diameter (4.8-11.5 cm), stipe length (10.2-20.2 cm) and stipe diameter (3.5-4.5 cm).  Maximum yield of 1570 g per kg of the dry substrate was obtained using Bheema (Calocybe indica) with the highest biological efficiency (157%) on paddy straw. The other strain, APK-2 and IIHR Ca-1 strain recorded yield of 1010g and 1040g of yield per kg of dry substrate with biological efficiency of 101% and 104% on paddy straw respectively.
