Abstract

Mushrooms have fascinated the man since time immemorial. They are delicacy in food and form choicest table dishes. Mushrooms are fleshy form of edible fungi, which are good source of vegetable protein, containing most of the essential amino-acids, minerals and vitamins. Throughout the world about twenty genera of mushrooms are being artificially cultivated but in our country three types, viz., white button mushroom (Agaricus bisporus), oyster mushroom (Pleurotus spp.) and paddy straw mushroom (Volvariella volvacea) are grown commercially. White button mushroom alone contributes about 80-90 per cent of country's production as against its global share of about 30-35 per cent.
