Abstract

The objective of the performed investigations was to compare mycelium growth of eighteen strains and two crossbred cultures of Lentinula edodes cultivated on agar media and on sawdust substrates from deciduous trees. On the basis of the performed experiments it is possible to conclude that the mycelium growth rate was a characteristic feature of the examined strains and crossbred cultures of L. edodes, although it depended on the type of the substrate on which it was growing. Key words: Lentinula edodes, strains, crossbred cultures, mycelium growth, substrates
