Abstract:

Hypsizygus ulmarius is popularly known as ‘Blue oyster mushroom’ or ‘Elm oyster mushroom’. It has been gaining popularity in recent times because of its unique meaty flavour and blue coloured pinheads. The major constraint in mushroom production is spawn preparation which requires high investment, sophisticated equipment and highly skilled technician. The present investigation was carried out to find the best substrate for spawn preparation and cultivation of Hypsizygus ulmarius in Laboratory and Mushroom Crop Room, Department of Plant Pathology, SHUATS, Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, India. Six locally available different grains viz., wheat, paddy, sorghum, bajra, maize, and barley were tested for production of H. ulmarius spawn with wheat grains as control. The results of the present investigation showed that mycelial colonization of H.ulmarius was faster in sorghum grains which took 16.67 days for complete formation of spawn. Whereas spawn development of H. ulmarius in remaining grains varies among themselves as bajra grains (17.67 days), paddy grains (18.33 days), wheat grains (18.67 days), maize grains (25 days), and barley grains (28.67 days), respectively.
