Abstract:

Straw/chinese mushroom (Volvariella volvacea) strain PK101 was cultivated on lignocellulosic by-products of sugar industry, alone and blended with cotton waste and rice straw. The highest yield was obtained on bagasse blended with cotton waste 1:1 ratio whereas minimum yield was obtained on leaves of sugarcane alone. The chemical analysis of fruiting bodies gave 23.44 to 38.62 percent protein from different substrates.
