Abstract:

The research experiment was carried out using the wheat and rice brans with wheat straw to evaluate the growth and yield parameters of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus florida). The brans were evaluated in combination with wheat straw (wheat straw + wheat bran 20%, wheat straw +wheat bran 15%, wheat straw +wheat bran 10%, wheat straw +rice bran 20%, wheat straw +rice bran 15%, wheat straw +rice bran 10% and control –wheat straw). The objective of this study was to find out best bran percentage supplemented that support the growth of oyster mushroom, produces maximum yield with highest biological efficiency (%). In total seven treatments are replicated six times under completely randomized design. The minimum time taken for complete spawn run (13.67 days), primordial initiation (19.50 days), fruiting bodies formation (20.83 days); maximum yield (450.99 g/kg wheat substrate), biological efficiency (274.10). Yield and biological efficiency were enhanced by wheat bran and the latter rice bran less suitable.
