Spawn making and effect of spawn made up on various substrates on yield of Pleurotus sajor-caju (Fr.) Sing., an edible mushroom



Spawn making and effect of spawn made up on various substrates on yield of Pleurotus sajor-caju (Fr.) Sing., an edible mushroom



National Academy Science Letters 12(8): 271-273



Spawn was cultured on 9 different substrates, as follows: waste tea leaves alone; 1:1 (by weight) waste tea leaves and waste paper; 2:1 tea leaves and paper; 1:2 tea leaves and paper; 1:1 maize cobs and paper; wheat grains; maize grains; Eleusine coracana grains; and sorghum grains. The highest yield of fruiting bodies was obtained on sorghum grains, followed by E. coracana, wheat and maize grains.
