Utilization Of Chestnut Mushroom | Cultivation Of Chesnut Using Sawdust | Pasteurisation Of Liquid Obtained From Chestnut


In mushroom cultivation, one of the most important steps is the pasteurization or sterilization. Primarily; all raw materials such as various kinds of wood sawdust or agricultural wastes used as substrate medium are required to be pasteurized. 

During the process, pasteurization liquor is generally dumped without re-cycled. In  this study it was investigated that  the fungicidal effect of pasteurization liquor  of chestnut (Castanea sativa)  sawdust,  which  is particularly  rich  in tannins,  against  brown rot  fungi “Coniophora  puteana”. 

The  wood  samples were  impregnated  with the  pasteurization  solution according to the ASTM D 1413 standard test method.  The protective effect of this liquor on Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) wood was considered by means of fungi decay test (EN 113). 

It was concluded that the pasteurization liquor enhanced the decay resistance of Scotch pine sapwood samples compared to the control group.

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
