Abstract

Calocybe indica (Milky mushroom) was cultivated on four different agroresidues viz paddy straw, coirpith, Wood shaving and bananatrash. The energy value of substrates worked out based on cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin content revealed highest energy value of 466 K. Cal per 100 gm substrate in coirpith followed by bananatrash (435 K. Cal per 100 gm), paddy straw (391 K. Cal per 100 gm) and wood shavings (380 K. Cal per 10 gm values).
