Yielding of Stropharia rugoso-annulata strains on wheat, rye, and maize straw substrate was investigated. Three strains, i.e. ‘Kaszub’, ‘Bartek’, and ‘Gartenriese’ were used in the research.

It was found that the type of substrate affected the yield of tested strains. The most suitable substrates to grow were maize straw and wheat straw supplemented with 5% of ryegrass seeds. The S. rugoso-annulata strains varied in respect of carpophore yield. ‘Bartek’ and ‘Gartenriese’, which are quite similar to each other, provided a better yield than the ‘Kaszub’ strain. Strains varied with respect to the weight of individual carpophores. The greatest weight of a single carpophore pertains to the ‘Bartek’ strain.
