A total of 21 isolates of Pleurotus were procured/ collected from different sources, for conducting studies on yield potential using wheat straw as substrate. The species of genus Pleurotus show great diversity in their adaptation to varying agro-climatic conditions. Various species/strains of Pleurotus were collected/procured from different sources. Majority of the species/strains were collected from the natural habitat during surveys conducted in different localities of Himachal Pradesh during monsoon months of the year. Some of the species were procured from NRCM Solan. Isolations from the fresh specimen, collected from the wild were made following the standard tissue culture technique. Experimental fruiting of 21 isolates under mushroom house conditions revealed that the spawn run (11.6 days) and pinning initiation (16.6 days) was quick in Pleurotus sp. III followed by P. sapidus and Pleurotus sp. I. Maximum biological efficiency of 92 per cent was recorded in P. flabellatus I on the basis of two flushes.
