This study was conducted to reduce contamination ratio of oyster mushroom bottle cultivation. The optimal conditions of substrate sterilization for reducing of contamination ratio were at $121^{\circ}C$ for 90 min. In addition, UV-C irradiation is good for lower contamination ratio to continue over 6 hours at cooling and inoculation room after sterilization. The contamination ratio and density of microorganisms of substrate were showed 0% after sterilization at $121^{\circ}C$ for 90 min. Trichoderma sp., main pathogen of mushrooms, was detected from substrate after sterilized during 2 or 4 hours at $101^{\circ}C$ and $105^{\circ}C$, respectively. The amount of electricity used was the lowest at $121^{\circ}C$ for 90 min than that of other sterilization conditions. The UV-C irradiation treatment was used UV-C lamp(40 watts) in the inoculation room($56m^3$). The density of bacteria did not detected after UV-C irradiation for 6 hours. And the death ratio of bacteria and Trichoderma sp. was 99.9% after UV-C irradiation for 6 hours. However, in the same UV-C irradiation time, the death ration of Cladosporium sp. was 90.9%. Therefore, the death ratio of fungi was lower than that of bacteria at the same UV-C irradiation treatment.
