Eight composted substrates were evaluated for mycelial growth, spawn run and the fruit body formation of Lyophyllum decestes. The experiments were carried out on livestock bedding materials such as sawdust, bark dust and rice husk after being composted. The composted livestock species were cow, horse, pig and chicken. Composted materials were supplemented. Cow livestock composts were the best materials examined in the study.
