Abstract:

Six species of dhingri mushroom were evaluated for their yield potential and other quality characters on paddy straw substrate in three different growing seasons viz., spring, summer and autumn with temperatures during growing seasons ranging from 18-25oC, 30-35oC and 15-20oC respectively. All the six test species produced crop in all seasons but with significantly varied yield. The maximum yield was produced by local species, P. ulmarius and the minimum by P. sajor caju. Maximum yield of (36.94 kg qt-1 substrate) was recorded in autumn season and minimum (30.19 kg qt-1 substrate) in summer season. Species P. sajor caju produced maximum crop (48.39 kgqt-1 substrate) in summer season. Maximum no. of fruit body per kg of mushroom (122.60) was recorded in P. petalloides and the average weight of single fruit body was more (8.41g) in P.sajorcaju and less (3.66g) in P. petalloides.
