Abstract

Lupin hull is a waste resulting from the processing of the lupin seeds and it contains mainly polysaccharides, which is unusable by human and stock directiy. One simple potential approach to utilise this waste is to cultivate mushrooms. Three mushroom species (Pleurotus ostreatus, Lentinus edodes and Flammulina velutipes) were tested for their ability to grow on ground lupin hull and this mixed with sawdust. Pleurotus ostreatus was best able to grow and form fruiting bodies under the laboratory conditions used.
