Conversion of crop waste in to pink oyster mushroom Pleurotus eous

Ten locally available crop wastes, viz., banana pseudostem (Musa spp.), mustard husk (Brassica campestris), mustard stem (Brassica campestris), dry fruit of Ridge gourd (Luffa aegyptiaca), groundnut shell (Arachis hypogaea), maize cob (Zea mays), paddy Straw (Oryza sativa), pea straw (Pisum sativum), rice husk (Oryza sativa) and tobacco stem (Nicotiana tabacum)were evaluated for various parameters of mushroom production. The substrates had variable effect on duration of spawn running, primordial development and maturation of fruit bodies. As compared to control (15, 18, 22 days) the paddy straw substrate (10, 13, 17 days) had shortest time recorded for those stages. Yield data also proved that paddy straw was the most competent substrate for the production of pink oyster mushroom Pleurotus eous.(PDF Copy
