Abstract:

The studies of growth behavior and yield potential of different strains (U-3, Delta, A-15, NCS-459, NCS-465 and Portbella) were tested. Among various strains of Agaricus bisporus, U-3 produced maximum mushroom yield (1246.40 gm per 8 kg of compost) as compared to A-15, Delta, NCS-459, NCS-465 and Portbella strains and maximum number of fruit bodies were produced in strains NCS-465 (128) whereas minimum fruit body was observed in Portbella (96). The average fruiting body weight was observed to be significantly higher in case of strain Portbella (12.00 gm). In the growth behavior, U-3 gave the best performance followed by the other strains. Maximum average length, width of stalk and average width, length of cap was observed in Portbella followed by A-15, U-3, Delta, NCS-459 and minimum was observed in NCS-465.


Keywords: Agaricus bisporus, mushroom yield, Portbella, A-15, U-3, Delta, NCS-459.
