Five substrates viz., wheat straw, paddy straw, sorghum straw, maize straw, sugarcane bagasse and banana pseudo stem were evaluated for production of pink oyster mushroom. Four parameter related to growth viz., No. of fruiting body, diameter of cap, length and thickness of stipe was measured. The results revealed that the highest number of fruiting body was found in wheat straw (31.00) followed by paddy straw (27.00). The stipe length of mushroom on different substrates ranged from 2.34 to 3.08 cm. The highest stipe length was observed in wheat straw (3.08 cm) whereas the lowest was observed in sugarcane bagasse (2.34 cm). Diameter of cap was also varied within substrates. The highest diameter of cap was recorded in wheat straw (9.90 cm) which was at par with paddy straw (9.70 cm). The highest thickness of stipe was found in sugarcane bagasse (6.53 cm) which was at par with wheat straw (6.21 cm). Different types of substrates significantly influenced the yield of mushroom. The highest yield obtained from wheat straw (213.20 g/kg) was superior among all substrates.
