The objective of this study is to determine the effects of composts prepared by different ratios of tea waste (TW) and wheat straw (WS) (1TW:3WS, 2TW:2WS, 3TW:1WS, 4TW and 4WS) on mycelium growth, mushroom yield and some quality properties of Agaricus bisporus mushroom. In the research, compost properties such as pH, moisture, carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and some mineral contents and C:N ratios were determined at the end of the pastorization process.
