Efficiency of spent pleurotus mushroom substrate on growth of sorghum (Sorghum bicolour (L.) moench)


Veera lakshmi P* and Parani K

In the present study revealed that the trends and future research in food products and effect of SMS on morphological indicators of Sorghum seedlings. The highest percentage of germination (92%), shoot and root length i.e., 6.0 and 8.8 cm on 2nd week and 8.5 and 14.8 cm on 4th week of seedlings were observed in T3 Spent Pleurotus Mushroom Substrate + Bacterial isolate I6 respectively as compared to other treatments. The lowest germination percentage 56% was seen in control T0 (only soil). The growth rate also lowered as in seen T5 Oil palm mesocarp waste substrate alone i.e. shoot and root length recorded 2.3 and 4 cm on 2nd week and 3.4 and 6.8 cm in 4th week of seedlings. Both fresh and dry mass of plant differed significantly between treatments. To conclude that the SMS of Pleurotus sajor- caju of an excellent substrate for the production of Sorghum seedlings, as it provides the formation of vigorous and quality seedlings.
