Title: Cultivation of Agrocybe aegerita (Brig.) Sing. on Lignocellulose Containing Wastes 2 . Nitrogen and Other Factors Determining Fruit Body Formation and Yield
Author: F. Zadrazil
It is known that certain Pleurotus species, when grown on different plant residues, are able to produce large quantities of fruit bodies relatively quickly. Ten to twenty % of the substrate can be converted into fruit body biomass withm 60-100 days (Kalberer 1974; Zadrazil 1974). With other wood destroying fungi (Flammulina velutipes, Agrocybe aegerita, Kuehneromyces mutabilis), lower yields of fruit bodies on cereal straw substrate were determined. It was proposed (Zadrazil, 1975b), that addition of nutrients was necessary for good yields. This study was conducted to test this assumption and to develop culture techniques using ligno-cellulose containing wastes as substrate for Agrocybe aegerita. The present publication is a continuation of previous studies with Agrocybe aegerita by Cailleux and Diop 1974, Zadrazil 1975a, 1975b, 1977; Zadrazil and Brunnert 1979a, 1979b and Brunnert and Zadrazil 1979.Please login to download the PDF for this proceeding.
