Abstract:
In the present study, Studies on Cultivation of Paddy Straw Mushroom (Volvariella volvacea) under Kashmir conditions was conducted to assess the physiological requirements, yield and other quality parameters of V. volvacea under traditional bed method. The grains viz., jowar, wheat, rice and oats were evaluated for spawn run on selected strains of V. volvacea viz., VV3, VV11, VV12 where in, jowar grain proved to be the best completing the spawn run in (08 days) in strain VV3. The strains of V. volvacea viz., VV3, VV11, VV12 evaluated under traditional bed method using paddy straw as substrate and wheat grain as spawn @ 200gm/10kg substrate and gram flour @ 200gm/10kg substrate showed VV3 as the best strain, completing the full spawn run (08days), pin head formation (15 days), yielding maximum number of fruit bodies/1000g (10.81), average fruit body weight (30.20g), maximum yield (2.08kg/10kg substrate) and biological efficiency (20.8%) recording lowest incidence of diseases/moulds (2%).
