ABSTRACT: The present study was to analyze the effect of different saw dust substrates, namely Ficus carica (Fig tree, T2), Albizia saman (Rain Tree, T3), Swietenia mahagoni (Mahogany tree, T4), Leucaena leucocephala (Ipil ipil tree, T5), Eucalyptus obliqua (Indian gum tree, T6) and mixture of all five tree sawdusts (T1), supplemented with 30% wheat bran and 1% lime, on the growth and yield performance of Pleurotus florida (Oyster mushroom). The highest average number of effective fruiting body (48.36g) was obtained from T4 sawdust substrate followed by T1, T5, T2, T3 and T6 respectively. The highest average weight of individual fruiting body (4.31g) was found from T3 sawdust substrate followed by T5, T2, T1, T6 and T4 respectively. The highest amount of biological yield (356.6g), economic yield (354.3g) and dry yield (35.43g) were found from T3 followed by T5, T6, T4, T1 and T2. The highest biological efficiency (212.8%) was obtained from T3 sawdust substrate followed by T1, T2, T6, T5 and T4.
