Abstract: Steam and hot water are the best methods for substrate pasteurization for oyster mushroom cultivation by chemical pasteurization and solarisation although prevented contamination, the yield was reduced. This could be due to the fact that the straw in these treatments was not soft enough (cooked) for obtaining better nutrition by the mushroom mycelium. The average yield of the oyster mushrooms in chemical pasteurization was reduced by 55% and with solarisation the average yield is reduced by 75% when compared to Hot water treatment. Heat was found to be best method for killing the contaminants on the straw as compared to chemicals. Therefore, Hot water (or) steam pasteurization can still be the best recommendation for substrate pasteurization for oyster mushroom cultivation
