Prospects of mexican edible mushrooms cultivation on agricultural wastes

Boletin de la Sociedad Mexicana de Micologia (19): 207-220

Prospects of mexican edible mushrooms cultivation on agricultural wastes

The potential cultivation of edible fungi in Mexico is discussed. The results of Mexican Pleurotus ostreatus (Jacq. ex Fr.) Kumm. and Volvariella bakeri (Murr.) Shaffer strains cultures are presented. P. ostreatus grows well on fresh coffee pulp, reaching a biological efficiency of 113.35%. The degraded pulp through fungal activity may be used later as cattle feed. Preliminary results of P. ostreatus cultivation on other wastes, such as paper, sugarcane bagasse and corn stubble are also discussed. Characteristics of the Mexican V. bakeri strains are given.

The aim of the present work was to study mycelium growth (spawn) and fruit body production of 3 valuable edible mushroom species, i.e. oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus), shiitake japones (Lentinus edodes [Lentinula edodes]) and giant strofaria (Stropha...
