Abstract:

Mushroom cultivation is gaining popularity in recent times because of its medicinal and nutritive value. Shiitake mushroom which is popularly known for medicinal property is cultivated worldwide and also gaining importance in Indian conditions. The large scale agro residues generated in India is not utilised economically and hence this investigation was carried out on such agro residues. Evaluation of the mycelial growth of L. edodes on the different agro-residues was studied and sorghum straw showed the fastest colonization of the shiitake (strain OE-388S) within 25.6 days and the slowest rate of colonization was exhibited by saw dust + sorghum straw combination (44.6 days).


Keywords: Shiitake mushroom, Lentinula edodes, Sorghum straw, Pearl millet straw, Wheat straw, Potato dextrose agar, Saw dust
