Abstract:
In the present diet conscious era, mushrooms are increasingly considered as a future vegetable, thus to sustain the productivity and enhance the yield, the experiment was conducted at Mushroom Production Technology unit at Bihar Agricultural University, Sabour, Bhagalpur during November 2019- February 2020.
White button mushrooms, Agaricus bisporus (Lange) Sing. were cultivated using different techniques of spawning bag. Among various techniques employed, closed mouth bag with perforated PVC pipe and without pores gave best result with minimum days for spawn run (14 days), case run (11.8 days) and gave maximum total yield (1.32 kg/bag) and biological efficiency 33.06% followed by closed mouth bags with perforated PVC pipes and 16-18 pores and closed mouth bags with 16-18 pores with total yield of 1.13 and 0.97 kg/bag respectively.
