Main materials used as media for oyster mushroom cultivation are pine sawdust, beet pulp, cotton seed pomace. Increases in the price and the unbalance of demand and supply of cotton seed pomace was often damage to oyster mushroom cultivation farm, so we investigated agricultural by-product to replace the cotton seed pomace for bottle cultivation of oyster mushroom. Treatment of coconut oil meal or coconut pomace delayed incubation period about 3 days compared with cotton seed waste treatment(control), but yield and income index showed similar to each other in three treatment. Consequently coconut oil meal and coconut pomace could select for cotton seed pomace substitute.
