Abstract:

The experiment was incepted to understand the effect of bio fertilizers on enhancement of physical properties of Agaricus bisporus. The application of bio fertilizers at the time of casing gave slightly better result followed by application of bio fertilizers at the time of spawning. All the treatments of bio fertilizers i.e. Pseudomonas putida and PSB (Bacillus megaterium) either alone or in combination were found significantly effective in improving growth and yield of A. bisporus. The phosphate solubilizing bacteria either alone or in combination performed better as compared to Pseudomonas putida alone. The reduction in time taken for mycelium run (10.3 days), pinhead initiation (3.9 days), and maximum size of fruiting bodies (12.4 cm), number of fruiting bodies (94.3 per bag), weight (30.1 g), yield (1.26 kg) and moisture content (89.4%), of white button mushroom after application of Pseudomonas putida and PSB (Bacillus megaterium) in cased. The microbial inoculants showed an increase of 49 per cent in yield as well and morphological characteristic when combined with Garden Loam soil, Farm Yard Manure, Waste tea leaf and Vermicompost used as a casing mixture for white button mushroom.
