EFFECT OF FIVE DIFFERENT CULTURE MEDIA ON MYCELIAL GROWTH OF AGROCYBE AEGERITAAbstract
A preliminary experiment was carried out to analyse the growth performance of Agrocyba aegerita mushroom cultures using chemosynthetic media. This study is mainly aimed to different media such as Yeast Malt Agar Medium (YMA), Saboraud’s Dextrose Agar Medium (SDA), Glucose Peptone Agar Medium (GPA), Malt Extract Agar Medium (MEA) and Potato Dextrose Agar Medium (PDA) on the growth of mycelium of the mushroom. Studies revealed that the joint portion of cap and stripe produced vigorous mycelium growth in minimum time; the average maximum growth was obtained on Malt Extract Agar (MEA) than Potato Dextrose agar (PDA) medium
