What are mushroom cultivation techniques?

There are many mushroom cultivation techniques. 

First, most species need particular techniques or technologies, so it is important to select ones that work with the species you want to grow.

mushroom cultivation techniques

From a commercial perspective, you want to choose an approach that will optimize your production, quality, and speed with a minimum cost, given the materials and conditions you have available.

Here are some examples of technologies for three species:

  • shiitake (Lentinula edodes)

natural logs cut from trees (particular trees that shiitake can grow on, like oak and a few others). Spawn placed in holes drilled in the logs. [natural log technology]

artificial logs made in filtered polypropylene bags with sterilized, supplemented, hardwood sawdust. Spawn added and mixed after sterilization and cooling. [bag technology]

growth in polypropylene bottles with sterilized, supplemented, hardwood sawdust. Often fully mechanized. Spawn added and mixed after sterilization and cooling.[bottle technology]

  • oyster (Pleurotus spp)

artificial logs made with bags like shiitake (except pasteurized and NOT sterilized and sometimes using chopped straw). Spawn added and mixed after pasteurization and cooling. [bag technology]

artificial logs made from long plastic tubes otherwise like bag technology. [column technology]

  • button mushrooms/portabella (Agaricus bisporus)

composted, supplemented straw/manure substrate placed in large trays [tray technology]

composted, supplemented straw/manure substrate placed in plastic bags [bag technology]

Once an appropriate technology is selected, there are all kinds of techniques involved including temperature, CO2, humidity, light, and pest management that can be combined in any number of ways to get the best production of the selected species.

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. They have also been shown to help lower cholesterol levels.”    White Button: White button mushrooms represent 90 percent of the total mushrooms consumed. “They’re a good source of potassium, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus [which supports bone and teeth health] and iron. They also contain selenium, a trace
