Abstract:

The various agricultural wastes as treatment, selected for the cultivation of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus florida) were paddy straw (T1), wheat straw (T2), maize cobb (T3), sugarcane bagasse (T4), Tulsi stalk (T5) and each of 4 kg and replicated for 3 times. The experimental design used was single factor Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The highest yield (1380 gm) with stipe length (2.60 cm) and pileus diameter (7.90 cm) was obtained from the wheat straw followed by other substrates. The spawn run duration (11.20 days) was lower in wheat straw and highest time required for spawn run in tulsi stalk (19.80 days), while pinhead formation (21.40 days) was lower in case of wheat straw and maximum time required for pinhead formation in tulsi stalk (28.70 days). The analysis showed that mushroom production was best in wheat straw.
