Abstract:
White button mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) is the most popular mushroom species in the world as well as in India. Production and consumption of button mushrooms have tremendously increased in India mainly due to increase in awareness of the commercial and nutritional significance of this commodity. The experiment was conducted at Mushroom Production Technology unit at Bihar Agricultural University, Sabour, Bhagalpur during November 2019- February 2020.
Agaricus bisporus (Lange) Sing. was screened for its ability to grow at different temperatures on different date of spawning with the objective of selecting the best time for producing button mushrooms. Seven dates (5th November to 5th February) were evaluated for their effect on growth and production at different mean temperatures and mean relative humidity. Among different date of spawning, 20th November gave the best result with spawn run completed in 11.60 days and case run in 15 days. The pinheads developed into solid button sized mushrooms in 30.6 days. Maximum yield of 1.13 kg/bag was also found on 20th November followed by 5th November and 5th December with total yield of 1.02 and 1.01 kg/bag respectively.
