Abstract:

Milky mushroom (Calocybe indica P&C) is one of the tropical, edible mushroom cultivated in India. Its white attractive colour with excellent keeping quality, ability to grow on wide range of agricultural wastes, high conversion rate and above all, its suitability for value addition have made it popular among all the edible mushrooms in recent times. It is very much essential to increase the productivity of mushroom by applying extra supplements during cropping period. For that purpose the experiment was conducted to observe effect of different supplement on productivity of milky mushroom. Therefore, seven different organic supplements viz: wheat bran, boiled wheat, rice bran, maize meal, bengal gram, groundnut cake and chicken manure were added @ 5 per cent of dry substrate individually during preparation of milky mushroom bags. Early spawn run (17.5 d) was observed in the substrate supplemented with maize meal followed by boiled wheat (20.0 d). Yield of mushroom per bag varied from 1106.7 g to 1266.7 g and highest yield of mushroom (1266.7 g) was obtained from the substrate supplemented with groundnut cake. The B : C ratio of mushroom bag without any additives was highest (1.38) followed by rice bran (1.36) and groundnut cake (1.32). There was significant increase in morphometric of mushroom may be due to presence of carbohydrate, amino acid and minerals in different additives applied.
