|Abstract:||Rice straw, composted Triplochition scleroxylon sawdust and rice straw – T. scleroxylon sawdust (1:1 w/w ration) combination were used as substrates to cultivate three species of the oyster mushrooms, Pleurotus ostreatus strain EM1, Pleurotus ostreatus floridarus strain POF and Pleurotyus pulmonarus strain PPO. Rice straw supported the best mycelial growth for the three strains and the rice straw – T. scleroxylon sawdust was the least suitable. On the other hand, the rice straw – T. scleroxylon sawdust mediym was the best substrate for mushroom production by the highest-yielding Pleurotys ostreatus strain EM1|
