Abstract: The organic wastes obtained from the rural areas such as from the ericulture/sericulture industry could optimally be utilized for mushroom (Pleurotus sajor-caju) cultivation and anaerobic digestion. In the present study, ericulture waste was screened for P. sajor-caju cultivation and biogas production. The study indicates that integrating ericulture and mushroom cultivation with anaerobic digestion it is not only possible to obtain microbial protein, biogas and fertilizer, but also the pollution of environment is minimised.
