Abstract

Edible mushrooms are renowned for their nutritional and medicinal properties and are thus of considerable commercial importance. Mushroom production depends on the chemical composition  of  the  basic  substrates  and  additional  supplements  employed  in  the  compost  as well as on the method of composting. The present study was focused to evaluate the growth and yield of Pleurotus ostreatus on Teff straw. As the result was shown, teff straw was the best quality of media (substrate) for production of oyster mushroom. This due to yielding of high number of primordial was formed which resulted in to fruit body (edible part of mushroom). As conclusion, this study was put the baseline information to cultivate mushrooms other edible mushrooms on this substrate as well as on the other substrate used for cultivation.

Keywords: Fruit body, Oyster mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus, Substrate, Teff straw
