P. florida, P. eous and P. sajor-caju was cultivated on different agro-wastes viz. paddy straw, wheat straw, sorghum straw, soybean straw, paddy + wheat straw (1:1), paddy + sorghum straw (1:1), paddy + soybean (1:1), wheat + soybean straw (1:1), wheat + soybean straw (1:1) and soybean + sorghum straw (1:1) to determine the effect of these agro waste on yield, growth and biological efficiency. Paddy straw showed significantly highest yield of 1248.3, 1348.7 and 1275.7 g/1.5 kg of dry substrate of P. florida, P. eous and P. sajor-caju respectively and biological efficiency of 83.22%, 89.90% and 84.99% with minimum days for spwan run completion, pinhead initiation, development of mature fruiting bodies of P. florida (14, 15 and 15 days), P. eous (18, 19 and 19 days) and P. sajor-caju (21, 24 and 23 days) respectively.
