Abstract:

Twelve strains of Agaricus bisporus (Lange) Sing. (AVT 01- AVT 06, AVT 07-AVT 11 and U3) were screened for their yield potential with the objective of selecting them to grow best in Punjab conditions. These strains with fifteen white strains (SSI01/12- SSI15/12) were checked for quality parameters (color, texture, stipe length and pileus diameter) to select for post-harvest processing such as canning and pickling. Cultivation was carried on short method compost using wheat straw as substrate. Out of white strains, AVT 02 (18.27kg/100 kg compost) gave maximum yield followed by AVT 06 (14.30kg/100kg compost). From brown strains, AVT 11 gave maximum yield of 10.78kg/100 kg compost followed by AVT 08 giving 8.30kg/100 kg compost. The color index indicated maximum L Value for six strains SSI07/12, SSI09/12, SSI12/12, AVT 02, AVT 04 and AVT 06 with minimum values for brown strains ranging from 30.00 to 31.15. Texture analysis indicated the hardness maximum for white strains SSI08/12 followed by six other strains SSI02/12, SSI06/12, SSI12/12 and U3 while brown strains showed less hardness. The average stipe length varied significantly as short as 2.10 cm in strain SSI12/12 and as long as 4.0 cm in strains SSI03/12 and SSI15/12 (white strains) while among brown strains, it is shortest for AVT-10 (2.40cm) and longest for AVT-08 (3.50cm).There is non- significant difference in the diameter of the pileus for all the white and brown strains of Agaricus bisporus. These strains showed a correlation of better yield with good color and textural properties.
