Component Selection of Nutrient Medium Based on Sugar Beet Pulp Extract for Cultivating Laetiporus Sulphureus

In this survey the possibility of using sugar beet pulp extract as the basis of growth medium for the cultivation basidiomycetes Laetiporus sulphureus (Bull.: Fr.) Murrill was evaluated. Positive results of evaluating the suitability of the medium based on this extract for cultivation on agar plates and in liquid media were obtained. Strain that is best adapted to the new source of nutrients was selected from three strains during a series of experiments. Component composition of nutrient medium to conduct further experiments with the selected strain was improved.
