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

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
