Abstract :

Study was conducted to optimize the effect of different carbon and nitrogen sources for the vegetative growth of Lentinula edodes in both solid and liquid media. Out of six different carbon sources viz. sucrose, lactose, galactose, fructose, dextrose and mannitol tested, fastest growth was obtained with dextrose as carbon source in solid media. In the broth, mannitol supported maximum mycelial dry weight of Lentinula edodes. Peptone when used as nitrogen source gave best result in solid media. Maximum mycelial dry weight was obtained in liquid media when ammonium nitrate was used as nutrient source.
