Abstract:

Mushroom cultivation is an old age practice and recent advancements in the production technology has made them to cultivate under commercial scale. Among various mushrooms cultivated the shiitake mushroom (Lentinula edodes) is very well known for its medicinal values and hence its requirement in large scale production is in need. Current evaluation was done to study the mycelial growth of shiitake on different media derived from agro-residues. The study revealed that highest growth rate after 6 days of incubation was seen in the sorghum meal agar (SMA) with strain OE-388S (69.9 mm) whereas lowest growth rate was observed with strain LE-16-02 on PDA (39.5 mm).
