Background: Mushroom is a typical fungi having spore bearing fruiting bodies without chlorophyll in them. Due to its high nutritive and medicinal value, it is being popular among the public.
Methods: The research was conducted in laboratory condition of Mahendra Gram Secondary School, Bhaktapur; under control environmental condition to evaluate primordial formation and yield analysis of oyster mushroom Pleurotus florida using different sterilization techniques from March to July 2020.
Result: Earlier primordial formation was visualized in chemical method and higher yield was obtained from steaming method of sterilization. However, boiling method showed harsh result for all parameters as primordial formation, fruiting and yield. But still number of researches should be conducted for the exact evaluation of the yield performance.
