Several locally available substrates such as rice straw, banana leaves, sawdust, oil palm refuse, oil palm bunch refuse or grass straw were evaluated to study conversion efficiency of P. sajor-caju. Rice straw and banana leaves were the best substrates, with 60% and above conversion efficiency on DW basis. The mean weight of the fruiting body was high (7.1 g) on banana leaves, compared with other substrates (2.1-5.0 g).
