Abstract:

The milky mushroom (Calocybe indica) is a robust, fleshy, milky white, umbrella like mushroom, which resembles button mushroom. It grows well at a temperature range of 25-35°C and relative humidity more than 80%. Present experiments were conducted to see the effect of different media, temperature range on mycelial growth yield performance of Calocybe indica. The result revealed that the average mycelial growth of all strain (CI-1, CI-4, CI-522, CI-524 and CI-530) was maximum in PSA (Potato sucrose agar) medium followed by PDA (Potato dextrose agar) medium. Similarly 30°C temperature found to be suitable for maximum mycelial growth of different strains. The mycelial growth of each strain was differed significantly on all tested media and temperatures. Sorghum and wheat grains raised spawn gave maximum yield (718.33g and 685g/kg of dry wheat substrate) with highest biological efficiency.
