Effect of different substrates on yield potential of Oyster mushroom (Pleurotussajor-caju)
Author(s): Gopal Singh, Sandeep Kumar, Mohit and Ritesh Sharma
Abstract: A study was conducted to examine the effect of different types of substrate (growing medium) on yield of mushroom (Pleurotussajor- caju) for production using four types of substrates like Wheat straw (WS), Paddy straw (PS) Mustered siliqua (MS) and Dried sugarcane leaves (DS), these substrate are generally agro waste leading environmental pollution after being. Various parameters are observed such as cropping period (days), pinhead initiation (days), number of sporophores and yield. The experiments were conducted in completely randomized design with three replicates. Results revealed that wheat straw + mustered siliqua (1:1) ratio produced better results in comparison to other treatments for minimum days of cropping period (71.5 day), pinhead initiation (19 day), highest number of sporophores/kg substrate (25.2) and increased yield (54.60 kg/q substrate).
