The research was framed to develop intraspecific hybrids of Pleurotus flabellatus having earliness in production, better nutritional qualities and higher yield compared to their parent strains. Fifteen monosporus cultures of P. flabellatus were isolated by spore print or serial dilution and or hyphal tip fragmentation techniques. Thirty four intraspecific hybrids were developed from different cross combinations of parents of P. flabellatus. Out of 34 intraspecific hybrids, 20 hybrids showing higher growth rate in malt extract media were selected to study the qualitative and quantitative responses during cultivation. Spawn running was faster in PF×PF33, PF×PF25, PF×PF26 and PF×PF27. Pinhead formation was quickest in PF×PF33, PF×PF24 and PF×PF7. Comparing all parameters of growth PF×PF1, PF×PF5, PF×PF13 and PF×PF33 were found most efficient. Nitrogen and protein concentration was good enough in PF×PF4 and PF×PF22. Considering all the quantitative parameters like biological efficiency, yield of 1st and 2nd harvest, PF×PF24, PF×PF33, PF×PF10, PF×PF9 and PF×PF22 may be selected for higher production.

Keywords: Pleurotus flabellatus, Monosporus cultures, Intraspecific hybridization, Dikaryotization.
