The present investigation was carried out to know the effect of different grains such as paddy, maize, wheat, sorghum and ragi on linear mycelial growth for spawn development, yield performance and biological efficiency of Pleurotus sajorcaju. Maximum mycelial growth of P. sajorcaju was recorded in ragi grains which was on par with sorghum grains followed by wheat grains, paddy grains and maize grains. Among the different grains tested, highest total yield and biological efficiency was recorded in maize grains followed by wheat, paddy, sorghum grains. Lowest yield and biological efficiency was obtained in ragi grains.

Keywords: Pleurotus sajorcaju, Grains, Spawn, Yield, Biological efficiency
