Abstract:

Light is an important factor deciding about yielding and morphological characters of Pleurotus carpophores. The objective of the research was to ascertain the impact of different light periods on radial growth of Pleurotus djamor, the pink oyster. The culture of P.djamor in petri plates were exposed to varying light period viz.6h light 18h darkness,9h light 15h darkness,12h light 12h darkness,18h light 6h darkness,15h light 9h darkness,24h light 0h darkness, respectively. Maximum growth of 75.33mm was recorded in 6h light and 18h darkness and it was significantly higher than the 18h light and 9h exposure to the light.


Keywords: Light duration, Pleurotus djamor, Radial growth.
