The effect of genotype on shiitake mushroom production on sawdust-based substrate was studied. There was significant difference in yield between these genotypes. Characteristics such as fruiting competence, sporophore morphology and mushroom yield varied considerably among the strains. Strains KS-10 and KS-9 belonging to wide-range genotypes produced high yields, strains KS-24 and KS-6 belonging to the cold-weather genotype fruited with high quality mushrooms. Production of shiitake mushroom on the sawdust-based substrate in the out door conditions resulted in low yields.
