Abstract:

The research experiment was carried out using the Botanicals with wheat straw to evaluate the growth and yield parameters of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus florida). The botanicals were evaluated in combination with wheat straw (wheat straw + Neem, wheat straw + Lantana, wheat straw + Turmeric, wheat straw + Guava, wheat straw + basil and wheat straw alone) to find out best botanical supplemented that support the growth of oyster mushroom. Each treatments were replicated five times under completely randomized block design. The minimum time taken for complete spawn run (14 days), primordial initiation (16 days), fruiting bodies formation (18 days), maximum yield (3,792 g/kg) and cost benefit ratio (7.28:1) were recorded (wheat straw + Basil) followed by wheat straw + Neem (3,509), wheat straw + Turmeric(3,438), wheat straw alone (2,736), wheat straw + Lantana (2,649) and wheat straw + Guava (1,351).
