In modem mushroom cultivation, the most important issue is to obtain possibly highest yields which are consistent with high quality of the carpophores. Agrocybe aegerita is an edible mushroom valuable due to medicinal properties. The aim of the performed investigation was to evaluate the mycelium growth and yielding of A. aegerita on agricultural and textile industry wastes. The subject of the studies was two strains of black poplar mushroom i.e. AE11 and AE06. The experiment showed that no statistically important differences between the mycelia growth of the investigated strains occurred. The mycelial growth was the best on straw of Miscanthus gigantheus, Miscanthus sinensis and Miscanthus sacchariflorus. The two investigated strains differed significantly with respect to their yield on the investigated substrates: wheat straw, M. sacchariflorus and P virgatum mixture as well as flax and hemp shives mixture. The best substrate for the cultivation of A ægerita AE 11 strain was mixture of flax and hemp shives while M. sacchariflorus and P. virgatum mixture for AE06. The content of dry matter was the highest on flax and hemp shives for both investigated strains.
