Abstract:

The study was conducted to evaluate different substrates for sporocarps production and biological efficiency (BE) of Pink Pleurotus mushroom Pleurotus djamor (Rumph.ex.Fr.). Different substrates were evaluated wheat straw, Paddy straw, oats straw, poplar leaves, apple leaves and chinar leaves. All the substrates were steam sterilized for 1 h and were inoculated with 10% spawn. The inoculated main substrates were arranged in a completely randomized design on shelves in the mushroom growing room and incubated at ambient temperature (22 ± 2°C). Relative humidity of the mushroom growing room was controlled by manually spraying water on the walls and placing open containers filled with water in the corners of the room. Data were analyzed by using opistat. Minimum time was taken by paddy straw (14.60) days and wheat straw (15.00) days for initiation of sporocarps and production of first flush while chinar leaves took maximum time (26.00) days for the same. Poplar leaves and apple leaves were equally efficient substrates for initiation of sporocarps and took around 21 days. Highest number of sporocarps per flush were recorded in paddy straw (26.19) followed by wheat straw (28.03). The average weight of sporocarps per flush was higher in straw substrates than leafy substrates. Highest biological efficiency (77.00 %) was recorded on paddy straw followed by wheat straw (68.68%). Among leafy substrates, biological efficiency was highest (46.21 %) in apple leaves followed by poplar leaves (45.56%) and lowest in chinar leaves (27.20%).
