mushrooms

Project

System Innovation Mushrooms

Approximately 40% of the production costs of mushrooms are borne by the substrate (compost).

The utilization of the substrate is not optimal (ca. 50%), the quality is not always predictable and the disposing of the residue (mushroom compost) must compete with animal manure.

Goals of this project are:

  • Generate knowledge about nutritional needs of mushrooms.  
  • Generate knowledge about the physical conditions for optimum vegetative and generative growth of mushrooms.  
  • Generate knowledge about the functioning of the current system.
