The experiment was conducted at Mushroom Production unit at SG College of agriculture and research station, Jagdalpur during July 2017-January 2018 under controlled condition. Fresh culture of Agaricus bisporus S-11 was maintained on potato dextrose agar. Compost was prepared by short method of composting and cultivation trials of Agaricus bisporus S-11 was carried out in a closed room provided with air conditioner as source of cooling. The relative humidity inside the cropping rooms was maintained to 60-70%. Spawn run completed in 15 days and required 12-15 days more for case run. The pinheads developed into solid button sized mushrooms in another 5-7 days. Morphological characteristics recorded for this mushroom revealed an average stipe length of 3.02 cm having girth of 1.7 cm. While the average pileus length and width was 2.1 cm and 3.37 cm respectively. Mushroom yield of 18.17 kg/100 Kg compost was recorded. Average weight of mushroom recorded was 19.1 kg with average number of fruiting bodies of 960 from 100 kg of compost. Benefit cost ratio for mushroom cultivation was estimated to be 1.98.
