Title: Effect of Various Growth Regulators on the Mycelial Yield of Pholiota destruens (Brond) Gillet.
Authors: A. Krishna and B.K. Sharma
The effects of growth regulators from seedling to reproductive stage have been studied widely in higher plants; information about their effect on Agaricus, is meagre and scanty. Cytokinins, auxins and gibberellins have been shown to influence the mycelial growth (Szabo et al., 1972; Chandra, 1974) as well as production of basidiocarp of higher fungi (Aleksandrov, 1964). Fraser (1953) has reported that utilization of Indol-3-acetic acid by Psalliota hortensis was affected in the culture medium. Hence, it was thought desirable to study the effect of growth regulators on the mycelial growth of this agaric.Please login to download the PDF for this proceeding.
