Abstract:

The white button mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) is very popular throughout the world and is the most important mushroom of commercial significance in India. It can be successfully cultivated in places where the environmental conditions are favorable but it is cultivated in North India in winter seasons due to the favorable conditions. The optimum temperature for mycelial growth is 20°C -25°C and that for fruit body formation 15°C -20°C and a high percentage of relative humidity (80-85%). The experiment was designed to evaluate the effect of bio-inoculants on the growth, yield and biochemical content of white button mushroom. Wheat straw supplemented with wheat bran was used for compost and application of Pseudomonas putida in casing layer was done by sprinkling of water. The casing combinations Garden Loam soil (GLS)+ Farm Yard Manure (FYM)+ Vermicompost (VC)+ Waste tea leaf + Pseudomonas putida (108c.f.u./ml)was gave significant difference in all the parameters i.e. minimum days required for fruitification (10.3 days), number of fruiting bodies per bag (94.3), fresh weight (1.02kg), protein (0.34mg), carbohydrate (0.26mg), moisture content (89.5%) and biological efficiency (20.24%) in comparison to non-supplemented casing layer with same combination. This research was focused upon the evaluating the nutritional content of white button mushroom after addition of bio-inoculants as a bio-fertilizer in casing layer.
