The study was conducted under Kashmir conditions. Bioinoculants viz., Pseudomonas fluorescens, Azotobacter sp., Azospirillium sp. (0.5, 1.0 and 2.0%) and Carbendazim @ 0.05% (control) were mixed separately with casing mixture at the time of casing. There was significant difference between supplemented and non-supplemented substrates. The substrate supplemented at the time of casing with Pseudomonas fluorescens 2.0% gave highest yield (16.18 kg q−1) as compared to control. The lowest yield (13.05 kg q−1) was recorded in the case of Carbendazim 0.05% (control). However no significant difference was observed in the quality indices including fruit weight, length of stipe and diameter of pileus of summer white button mushroom when adding bio-inoculants to the substrate.
