Coconut coir and beans straw could blend well for mushroom production. This would increase the biomass use and also serve as a way of recycling the agricultural wastes. The project was carried out to evaluate the mycelial growth rate, yield and cost benefit analysis of oyster mushroom ( Pleurotus ostreatus ) cultivation on sole coconut coir (CC), sole bean straw (BS), and a 2:3 ratio mixture of BS and CC (BS:CC Mix) as substrates. Each substrate type was subjected to 3 different composting… Expand
