Abstract:
Mushroom is an especial horticultural crop. It is alternative to food shortage in the world and used as consumption and medicinal purpose. The development effect of <em>Pleurotus sajor-caju </em>on different substrate has studied in lab. The production recorded on wheat straw, rice straw, soybean straw, groundnut husk and gram straw substrates found 2.80 kg, 2.40 kg, 2.22 kg, 2.15 kg and 1.35 kg respectively. Meanwhile, pin head formation on substrates found wheat straw (30.60 days), rice straw (30.35 days), soybean straw (32.62 days), groundnut husk (31.45 days) followed by gram straw (28.50 days). Wheat straw showed good result against other experimented substrates. It having maximum yield followed by rice straw. Whereas groundnut, pea and gram straw recorded significantly less. Among experimented substrates wheat straw found most effective for production yield but gram straw takes less days for pin head formation.
