ABSTRACT

The nucleotide sequence is obtained by amplification of the ITS region of rDNA identified as Agrocybe aegerita. Cultivation of A. aegerita was carried out on two substrates, namely, wheat straw and sawdust. Sawdust proved to be the better substrate because it resulted in 67.66% biological efficiency as compared to 56.25% for wheat straw. Supplementation with wheat bran resulted in increased biological efficiency on both substrates, the highest being on sawdust with 10% wheat bran (74.33% biological efficiency).
