Abstract: This study was conducted on the growth, ratio of protein and cultivation of Pleurotus ostreatus on local celluosic wastes in different concentrations of the ferrous (Fe++). It was observed that Fe++ had effect on the formation and growth of the basidiocarps. The shortest and longest period of basidiocarps formation and growth were obtained in 100 ppm and 300 ppm Fe++, respectively. The higher total amount of yield was found for 100 ppm Fe++ when compared with control, 200 and 300 ppm Fe++. Significant (P < 0.05) difference was found between the control and 100 ppm Fe++, but the best yield was obtained. Mushroom protein ratio of all concentrations of ferrous (Fe++) were found to be lower than control.
Key Words: Pleurotus ostreatus, growth, yield, ferrous (Fe++), protein ratio
