Abstract:

Different substrates for the production of different oyster (Pleurotus eoeus, Pleurotus florida, Pleurotus sajor-caju, Hypsizygous ulmarious) mushrooms was studied. Substrates viz. maize stover, maize rind, maize sheath or cob sheath and paddy straw as control were evaluated as substrates. Further, these maize crop byproducts combinations with paddy straw were studied for mushroom production. Among the different maize crop byproducts used for the cultivation of oyster mushroom, 50 % paddy straw+50 % maize sheath or cob sheath gave the highest yield (593g/bag) and bioefficiency (90.95 %). Among different varieties of oyster mushrooms Pleurotus eoeus was found to be the best variety to grow on 50 % Paddy straw + 50 % Maize cob sheath  as substrate for mushroom production.
