Abstract:
The oyster mushroom (Pleurotus spp) is a popular mushroom due to its tremendous stability of cap and stem, cooking qualities and longer shelf life. Among the consumers, where Pleurotus spp mushrooms is very trendy, but currently this mushroom is not cultivated in large scale. Due to its gradual depletion of nutrients due to their subsequent utilization of mushroom mycelium. Hence good growth and better yield of mushroom can be achieved when different substrates are supplemented. The basic plant substrates that can be used for oyster mushroom cultivation are saw dust, wheat straw, rice husk, Mango, Jackfruit, Coconut, hulls, straw, stalk, paper corn cobs, waste cotton, leaves and pseudo stem of banana, water hyacinth, duck weed, rice straw etc. This substrate does not require costly processing method and enrichment material which helps in supporting the growth. Among the different substrates used the study has revealed that faster mycelial growth is consistent with better yield and highest biological efficiency.
