Abstract

An experiment was conducted to determine the effect of different organic additives (cereal and
leguminous flour of rice, wheat, maize, gram, chickpea, lentil, soybean and black gram) at different
concentrations (2, 4 and 6%) on spawn growth of Pleurotus ostreatus. Among all tested organic
additives, 6% wheat flour gave the maximum mycelial run rate (MRR) and took least time to complete
mycelial growth as compared to other additives. The lowest MRR was observed in control (6.96 mm
day-1) on 15th days, which was significantly lower than all the other treatments indicating that addition
of supplements enhances the spawn growth and minimizes the days of spawn growth.
