The objectives of today’s research project were to determine the effects of substrate types and substrate containers on yield, biological efficiency, size, and solid content of oyster mushroom Pleurotus ostreatus. Ready? Then take your notepad and let us keep growing.
Finding the right ventilation system for your grow room is crucial as the wrong system will impact not only the airflow but the humidity and the CO2 concentration within your grow room. Both parameters will influence the growth of your mushrooms heavily.
In a relatively recent study, the authors investigated the influence of different color lights on the spore germination on various mushroom species.
The cultivation of mushrooms means finding the right balance between several factors. In today’s video, I will talk about a research project which investigated the influence of CO2 on the development of Grifola frondosa.
Light plays an essential role in the life cycle of many mushrooms. It not only can trigger the pinhead formation but also influence the spore germination rate. In today’s video, I will talk about a research project which investigated the influence of different wavelength on the physicochemical and sensory qualities of Pleurotus eryngii known as the King Oyster Mushroom.
To improve the mushroom cultivation process researcher, add new technology components that allow shortening the cultivation time, increasing the yield, and the quality of the fruiting bodies. But if you want to do that, it is essential to know the physiology of fungi, combined with information on the environmental factors that affect the growth and development of macromycetes. One of these factors is light. Light regulates the morphogenic process in many types of fungi. Which is quite interesting as they are not phototrophic organisms. In today’s research paper, therefore, the authors investigated the influence of different laser irradiation on the development of vegetative mycelium and the period of the appearance of the buds of the fruiting bodies of Pleurotus ostreatus.
