This study was conducted to investigate the effect of different sizes of bags on the yield of oyster mushroom. The bags of different sizes were used (7x14"; 6x12"; 8x12"; and 9x14"). Spawn running, pin head, fruit body formation, and yield of oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) were determined by using growth media of cotton waste supplemented with lime and wheat bran 4% each. Results showed that bag size in the (8x12") and (9x14") significantly affect the yield. The faster spawn running in the bag sized (8x12") which took 30 days. Pinheads formation was maximum in the bag sized (8x12") which gave 48.8 number. Maximum mature mushrooms were obtained in the bag sized (7x14") 15.4 number. Total yield was maximum in the bag sized (6x12") 69.2 gm.
