ABSTRACT:
Investigation on the cultivation of milky mushroom, Calocybe indica was conducted to find out the growth and yield performance on different substrates. The yield of fresh mushroom obtained from paddy straw, teak leaves and sugarcane trash substrates were 1140, 745 and 570 g / kg respectively. The nutritional significance of Calocybe indica cultivated on different substrates was assessed in terms of protein, carbohydrate, amino acids and lipids. The cellulolytic activity and coir pith compost was also tested using Calocybe indica. The present result suggest, the lignocellulosic substrate like paddy straw, teak leaves and sugarcane trash shown great potential for use as a raw material since this substrate provides an economically acceptable production for Calocybe indica.
