Golgen Bahar Oztekin, Haluk Sayin


This study was conducted to determine the effects of different casing inuculum (CI) sources on yield, quality and morphological developmant of white buttom mushroom (Agaricus bisporus) in 2016 autumn-winter period in the Ege University Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Horticulture. Two different CI spawms [A15 and F1Cl] (100 g m-2) was used. Commercial mushroom bags received from private company and spawms were applied on 16.11.2016 to casing layer. Experiment was finished after 3rd flash on 04.01.2017. The total yield, fruit number, average fruit weight, quality values (the hat's diameter, height, stalk length, thichness and weight, carpophore weight, biomass, firmness, color, and vitamin C) and nutrient content was determined. The results obtained from experiment showd that CI was increased carpophore weight and fruit number. In addition, CI appication gave the positive effects on yield and quality of white buttom mushroom. Among the used CI, A15 had the better performance. It was concluted that studies should be continued with different sourge of CI and doses.

Keywords: Agaricus bisporus, A15, F1C1, casing layer, spawm.
