The study was conducted in an average temperature of 27 0C. Objectives were to determine the yield performance of oyster mushroom using different substrates and substrates’ combination; to determine if there is a significant difference on the yield performance of oyster mushroom using different substrates and substrates’ combination; and to identify which of the different substrates and their combination performs best in oyster mushroom production. The experiment was laid out using Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with an area of 30m2 . Four treatments were used and replicated five times. Sawdust, corn cob and rice straw were the substrates used in this study. Treatments were: T1 (100% rice straw), T2 (100% corn cob), T3 (100% sawdust), and T4 (33.33% rice straw + 33.33% corn cob + 33.33% sawdust). Results of the study showed that there was a highly significant difference on the average number and total number of oyster mushroom during the first harvest. However, the average weight and total weight of oyster mushroom were not significantly different. The average number, average weight, total number, and total weight were not significantly different during the second to fifth harvest. Based on the results of the study, the adoption of T3 to obtain more number of oyster mushroom per fruiting bag per treatment is highly recommended to improve the production in the locality.
