Lignocellulosic residues were tested as artificial log to mushroom production of Lentinula edodes. Three isolates of L. edodes were grown in substrates based on corn bog, and sawdust or bark of eucalypt, enriched with rice bran 20%. The biological efficiency (BE) were higher when corn borg and sawdust was used and the isolate UFV 73 was that presented well shaped mushrooms and higher productivity. The isolates UFV 16 and UFV 52 presented many deformed mushrooms. These results show the importance to select well-adapted isolates for mushrooms production on synthetic logs.
