Influence of Light On The Vegetative Growth and Fruitbody Formation of Pleurotus Sajor-Caju (FR.) Singer

Ikechukwu A. Okwujiako
KEYWORDS: Light growth friutbody Pleurotus sajor-cafu.

ABSTRACT:

The effects of light on the vegetative growth and fructification of Pleurotus sajor-caju are reported in this paper. Although light was shown to inhibit vegetative growth, it was found necessary for the production of friutbodics in vitro and under semi-field conditions. However, the light stimulus for fruitbody initiation could not be received by mycelium younger than five days. The implications of these findings on commercial mushroom fanning are highlighted
