Long-term stability of Trichoderma

https://youtu.be/DPQx9NplcRI Transcript Studying Trichoderma is crucial if you want to avoid it. I talk, therefore, about a research paper that tries to find the most suitable organic substrates for the biomass production, viability, and efficacy of the biocontrol strain Trichoderma harzianum AS12-2. Chemical pesticides are the most common way to protect plants against pests and … Continue reading Long-term stability of Trichoderma

How to increase the yield of Trichoderma?

https://youtu.be/carARem72no Transcript Trichoderma is one of the arch-nemesis of every mushroom farmer. If you want to prevent it in the first place, you need to study it. I, therefore, analyzed a research paper in which the authors optimized the cultivation of Trichoderma. In the paper, the authors studied the effects of carbon, nitrogen, and inorganic … Continue reading How to increase the yield of Trichoderma?

How the C/N ratio affects the Yield

https://youtu.be/3WMssVbzc1g Transcript Mushrooms can decompose various lignocellulosic substrates. As these substrates have different carbon-nitrogen ratios, today’s research paper studies the effect of the carbon-nitrogen ratio on the yield and size of Pleurotus pulmonarius. For the primary substrate, the authors used corncobs, wastepaper, and sawdust. These substrates had the following carbon-nitrogen ratios—120 for wastepaper, 400 for … Continue reading How the C/N ratio affects the Yield

Classical Substrate vs. Synthetic Substrate | White Button Mushroom

https://youtu.be/22ZTJ3XAjwA Transcript Agaricus bisporus, known as the button mushroom, is one of the most widely produced mushrooms worldwide. As this mushroom is a secondary decomposer, it grows only on already decomposed substrates which traditionally consists of straw, manure, gypsum, and urea. To make viable mushroom cultivation using alternative raw materials, one must consider the availability, … Continue reading Classical Substrate vs. Synthetic Substrate | White Button Mushroom

Does this casing material work? Armillaria mellea

https://youtu.be/ogNRxo7kUtg Transcript Armillaria mellea is an edible and medicinal mushroom found from spring to Autumn near coniferous or broad-leaved trees. In Asian countries such as China and Japan, the research has been focused on an artificial production of the fruitbodies to secure precious medicinal mushroom resources, with Korea focusing on using sawdust as the main … Continue reading Does this casing material work? Armillaria mellea

Efficacy of grain spawn and Lime/Gypsum ratio | Oyster Mushroom

Choosing the right amount of lime and gypsum as well as the optimal ratio between them is crucial as the values will influencing the mycelial growth rate. In today's video I'll, therefore, talk about a research paper in which the authors compare different treatments with lime and gypsum as well as several types of grain … Continue reading Efficacy of grain spawn and Lime/Gypsum ratio | Oyster Mushroom

How to cultivate the edible and medicinal Oudemansiella radicata

https://youtu.be/nO3pvy_R0Uc Transcript Today’s mushroom is edible and medicinal and has been inhabited on the soil surface or rotted woods of the broad-leaved trees from summer to autumn. I will, therefore, present today a research paper in which the authors investigated the different supplements for the cultivation of this mushroom. Oak sawdust was used as the … Continue reading How to cultivate the edible and medicinal Oudemansiella radicata

How To Prepare Mushroom Grain Spawn | Fundamentals

https://youtu.be/ePyZ2B64ce8 Transcript A reliable mushroom production relies heavily on high-quality spawn. As many mushroom farmers do not have access to high-quality spawn, they produce their own. But producing your own spawn is not an easy task, as many mushroom farmers still struggle even after years of running their farm. In today’s video, I, therefore, do … Continue reading How To Prepare Mushroom Grain Spawn | Fundamentals

Composted substrate VS Non-composted substrate | Button Mushroom

https://youtu.be/zCffcc0vU-o Transcript The commercial production system of Agaricus bisporus relies entirely on composting to generate a mushroom-specific substrate. This process is energy, time, and labor-intensive and releasing odor and high nutrients into the environment. The goal of many researchers is, therefore, to find alternative processes and or substrates, which reduces on the one side the … Continue reading Composted substrate VS Non-composted substrate | Button Mushroom
