ABSTRACT:
In the present investigation, the mushroom yield, chemical composition, nutritional value of Pleurotus platypus cultivated in paddy straw, black gram stem and black gram pods were determined. Fresh mushroom yield amounts obtained from paddy straw, black gram stem and black gram pods substrate were 940, 560 and 595 g / kg respectively. Mushroom cultivated on different substrates were analyzed for protein, carbohydrate, amino acids and fatty acid content. The cellulolytic activity and coir pith compost was also investigated in Pleurotus platypus. Hence P. platypus was also selected for molecular studies. Therefore, the present results suggest it could be used to recycle the agro – waste materials.
