MANAGEMENT OF AGRICULTURAL SOLID WASTES BY LOCALLY ISOLATED PLEUROTUS SPECIES, A WHITE ROT FUNGIC.S. SINGH, R. SHARMA, Y. PATEL AND V. K. SINGH
Unexplored Purvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh state was selected as a sampling site just to evaluate the potentialities of the natural isolates of the Pleurotus as well as biodiversity of the eastern region. A total of 15 natural isolates of Pleurotus were isolated and identified up to species level by Di- Mon mating. Out of 15, 5 isolates were selected for the management of the agricultural solid waste after preliminary screening. Solid state fermentation was carried out to evaluate the degradation efficiency of the Pleurotus in terms of biological efficiency. Among 5 isolates, P. pulmonarious was found to be most promising strains for the degradation of agricultural wastes.
