Some factors affecting the growth rate of sporophores of the cultivated mushroom



Some factors affecting the growth rate of sporophores of the cultivated mushroom



Scientia Horticulturae 8(1): 27-37



The growth of sporophores of mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) was studied using the Gompertz growth curve, and the parameters of the curve were found to vary appreciably between experiments. Three factors were associated with an increase in growth rate, viz. (1) the earliness of initiation of sporophores, (2) the removal of adjacent sporophores, and (3) a decrease in the number of sporophores initiated.
