Deewakar Baral, Ayon Roy and Sukram Thapa
Pleurotus is one of the most important and widely use mushroom in the world it contributed about 25% of the world total mushroom production. It can utilize agricultural waste and converted into a highly nutritious food. Now a days for strain improvement in mushrooms several modified breedings techniques such as selection and hybridization by the process of Protoplast fusion, use of chemical mutagenesis, use of resistance markers, have been employed with new findings of high yielding, more nutritious, disease resistance and more biological efficiency.
