Milky Mushroom

Milky Mushroom (Calocybe indica):

Calocybe indica is an edible white summer mushroom also known as milky mushroom. It can be easily grown in the temperature range of 25-350C. It has moderate protein content and has a good biological efficiency (60-70%) under optimum conditions. Its sporophores have long shelf life. The major advantage is that it can be best fitted in relay cropping when no other mushroom can be grown at higher temperature. Calocybe indica has a very good scope for further cultivation and it can replace the other tropical mushrooms like Pleurotus spp. and Volvariella spp.
