Mushroom Farm in Gulberga | Biobritte mushrooms | Mushroom cultivation training

In 2018, Soham mane, a resident of Gulberga, Karnataka, quit his job as a computer operator and decided to become a farmer. However, he wanted to do something different, so he decided to begin cultivating mushrooms.

“In Gulberga, everyone is a farmer but not many cultivated mushrooms at that time. I got interested in them after reading several articles that suggested that has medicinal properties that can prevent iron deficiency and,” begins Soham, who was diagnosed with polio at the age of 2.

So, he started an oyster mushroom farming unit in his home after reading about their high nutritional value. In the following months, he learned the various techniques involved in mushroom cultivation, and also approached other growers who lived in the same village to mentor him.

During these discussions, he identified two major issues he could face while cultivating the edible fungi:

The ‘Mycelium’, a fungus-like bacteria that grows into a mushroom, could catch a disease within the first 10-days, which means the mushroom would not grow. To prevent the spread of the disease, 100 yards around this one fungus would have to be cleared.

Once the mushroom was harvested, it had to be sold within 10 hours.

“After several months of experimenting, I mastered the harvesting system. Using my personal savings as the investment, I started to put together machinery for a humidifier, to maintain room temperature. I also mastered the method of cultivating fungus in bags to ensure it did not catch any disease in the first 10-days. After this, it needs to be watered in regular intervals, for one week. Secondly, to ensure no mushroom goes to waste, I experimented with dried mushroom powder to make a variety of by-products,” says Soham.

He managed to successfully produce 20 by-products with the support of Biobritte mushrooms and Biobritte's mushroom buyback facility.

What is the major problems in mushroom cultivation?

Problems and solutions in the cultivation of the mushroom including: a) Mycelium fails to form Improper initiation strategy.  Solutions : consult parameter of growth. Alter moisture, temperature, light, carbon dioxide, etc.  Note : If the substrate is too moist, decrease moisture b) Chlorinated or contaminated water.  Solutions :  Use activated charcoal water filters to eliminate chemical contaminants or any other ways of simple or appropriate technology. c) Bad substrate.  Solutions : Check substrate. Spread the substrate and remix the substrate, package again, make sure all raw materials are good and fresh.   Note : It is necessary to pasteurize immediately after bagging otherwise fermentation gas will slow down the rate of growth of mycelium or stop mycelium growth. d) Bad pasteurization.  Solutions : Check method of pasteurization. Release all air and make sure there is continuous steam before starting pasteurization for a period of 3h. e) The substrate in the bag is too hot when i

Oyster mushroom vs button mushroom nutrition | Nutritional comparison between oyster and button mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms are beloved the world over for their delicate texture and mild, savory flavor.  Oyster mushrooms are more expensive than white button mushrooms but less so than rarer mushrooms like morels, and take little prep since they can be used whole or chopped.                                Oyster: “These are low in calories and rich in fiber, protein, selenium [which may help prevent cancer], niacin [aka, vitamin B3] and riboflavin [aka, vitamin B2].Oyster mushrooms also contain an active compound called benzaldehyde, which has potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, research shows oyster mushrooms may significantly reduce blood glucose levels.
