Abstract:
The present experiment was carried out to find out the optimum spawn rate to get maximum yield and biological efficiency. Two strains (PL-19-05 and PL-19-06) of oyster mushroom were cultivated by using wheat straw as substrate and wheat grain spawn at different rates (3%, 4%, 5% and 6%). Among four spawn rates early spawn run and pin head initiation were observed at 6% spawn rate for both strains, followed by five percent, four percent and three percent spawn rate. Similarly, yield and biological efficiency were also higher at six percent spawn rate for both strains, followed by five percent, four percent and three percent Spawn rate. Based on the results six percent spawn rate would be suggested as optimum spawn rate for sub-humid conditions of Udaipur region to get higher yield.
