Mushrooms are the edible fleshy fruiting bodies, protein rich of prescribed fungi, which may be grown under cultivation. The most commonly cultivated mushroom species is Agaricus bisporus. Cultivated mushrooms are usually grown in the dark in climate-controlled rooms. The fungal inoculum or ‘spawn’ is added to a pasteurized substrate in growing containers or beds. After the fungal strands (mycelia) have spread through the compost, a layer of peat or soil (the ‘casing’) is added. The fruiting bodies begin appearing about 6 weeks after spawning and continue appearing in brighten up about 7-10 days apart for the next 6-8 weeks. To maintain atmospheric condition and precipitation. About one dozen mushroom species are commercially grown in the world but in Haryana state mainly only two species are cultivated which are grown at commercial level.

Abstract


Mushrooms are the edible fleshy fruiting bodies, protein rich of prescribed fungi, which may be grown under cultivation. The most commonly cultivated mushroom species is Agaricus bisporus. Cultivated mushrooms are usually grown in the dark in climate-controlled rooms. The fungal inoculum or ‘spawn’ is added to a pasteurized substrate in growing containers or beds. After the fungal strands (mycelia) have spread through the compost, a layer of peat or soil (the ‘casing’) is added. The fruiting bodies begin appearing about 6 weeks after spawning and continue appearing in brighten up about 7-10 days apart for the next 6-8 weeks. To maintain atmospheric condition and precipitation. About one dozen mushroom species are commercially grown in the world but in Haryana state mainly only two species are cultivated which are grown at commercial level.
