Abstract:

Waste of certain process can be the input source of other sectors in order to reduce environmental pollution. The research experiment was carried out to investigate the cultivation of oyster mushroom on horticultural waste i.e. apple pomace and wheat straw mixed in the different ratio. It was found that the best yield of mushroom was observed when 0.50 kg of apple pomace mixed with 1.50 kg of apple pomace maximum fruiting body i.e. 28 were observed with approximate weight of 110gm with highest biological efficiency of 54.23% which is higher than the yield obtained from wheat straw recommending it blending with wheat straw. There was a significant increase in yield of mushroom in apple pomace + straw as compared to control i.e. wheat straw. The NPK found to be 3%, 0.18%, 2.6% respectively and 3.20% of fat content.
