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

Alternative Substrates for Cultivating Shiitake

https://youtu.be/oMHH6dXuGqM Transcript The search for the optimal substrate continues. In today’s video, I will, therefore, go over a research paper in which the authors investigated four different strains on four different substrates for the cultivation of shiitake.For the substrate, the authors used vineyard pruning, sorghum stubble, sugarcane bagasse, and oak shavings. All substrates were hydrated … Continue reading Alternative Substrates for Cultivating Shiitake

Optimizing the Mushroom Yield | Reishi

https://youtu.be/OuFdCj1hbFY Transcript If you want to increase the mushroom yield, then having the right substrate mixture is an important factor. In today’s video, I go, therefore, over three research papers that tested different substrate types and supplementation to increase the mushroom yield of Ganoderma lucidum, known as Reishi. The first study tested 6 different strains … Continue reading Optimizing the Mushroom Yield | Reishi

Substrate Optimization | Pleurotus cornucopiae

https://youtu.be/HMROa6fGAOY Transcript In today’s video, I will talk about two different scientific studies addressing the need to optimize the growing conditions of Pleurotus cornucopiae. The first study investigated pasteurization and sterilization on different substrates on the yield and biological efficiency. The second study analyzed the influence of different substrates and moisture content on the mycelial … Continue reading Substrate Optimization | Pleurotus cornucopiae

Optimum Growing Conditions for the Mycelium of Lion’s Mane

https://youtu.be/8hFFrXdnT-o Transcript Growing high-quality mushrooms depends on finding the best mushroom strain. It is, therefore, necessary to run experiments to analyze the vegetative growth of several strains. Today’s research paper addressed this topic and investigated different growing conditions of four strains of Hericium erinaceus, better known as the Lion’s Mane. All four strains were grown … Continue reading Optimum Growing Conditions for the Mycelium of Lion’s Mane

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

Optimizing Culture Media | Pleurotus sapidus

https://youtu.be/MPUbF4oHyQU Transcript The success of your mushroom farm depends on the reliability of your production. To secure a constant production with a high-quality yield, the availability of good quality spawn is necessary. This itself depends on identifying suitable agar media, which leads to the vigorous growth of the mycelium after the transfer. Therefore, today’s research … Continue reading Optimizing Culture Media | Pleurotus sapidus

Optimized Culture Conditions | Reishi

https://youtu.be/NKF31_b49hY Transcript Ganoderma lucidum, better known under the name Reishi, is one of the most famous medicinal mushrooms worldwide. As every cultivation starts with the cultivation of the mycelium, today’s research paper compares eight different strains on ten various agar media with each other. The goal: To find the optimal nutritional and environmental conditions for … Continue reading Optimized Culture Conditions | Reishi
