Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to know the effect of different substrates such as paddy straw, wheat straw, banana leaves, sugarcane bagasse, sugarcane leaves, newspapers and maize stalks and leaves on spawn running time, primordial initiation time, fruiting body formation time, yield performance and biological efficiency of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus sajorcaju). Lowest time required for spawn running, primordial initiation and fruiting body formation was recorded in sugarcane bagasse followed by newspapers, paddy straw, banana leaves and wheat straw. Amongst the substrates, paddy straw showed highest yield and biological efficiency followed by banana leaves, wheat straw, sugarcane bagasse, newspapers and sugarcane leaves. Least yield of mushroom was obtained in maize stalks and leaves.


Keywords: Pleurotus sajorcaju, Substrates, Growth, Yield, Biological efficiency.
