Article published here, as the last of three articles that are a summary of the creation and application of the concept of growing mushrooms as controlled process of its nutrition end my activity on this website. It will still remain available for the next year. Those interested in contacting me, feel free to use my email address firstname.lastname@example.org. or Skype.
From my part, I can confirm that the presented concept is useful in the development of technologies for growing mushrooms. The evidence lays in the obtained results; yield of 40 kg\m2 in three flushes is possible. It is additionally confirmed by the development of Nutrigain.
This does not mean that particular interest in this concept followed in the fields of science or practice.
Lack of my activity on this page does not mean a definitive departure from the development and validation of the concept. Nowadays, I have started tests on the use of ALBOCEL (crafted cellulose and hemicellulose) in the cultivation of mushrooms. The aim of using Albocel is to improve the water capacity of the substratum. Its growth is to facilitate balance in the introduced water with even higher doses of feeding supplements. We are also planning other uses of this product and spent compost to nutrient of mushroom. The end goal remains the answer to the question of whether mushroom can be grown on the substratum without the process of composting.
Achieved results will be published and shared by other means and mediums. The information about them will be put on this website.
I would like to thank everybody who visited this site for their attention and dedicated time.
The feeding and compost
The bottom mushroom Agaricus production has been increasing worldwide since the implementation of cultivation on compost phase III and the introduction of hybrids. More investments in larger production areas have also been observed as well as the development of companies with full production cycle that include sourcing of materials and sales of the final products either as fresh or processed forms. In recent years, the marketing of mushroom consumption and the cultivation of exotic species have enhanced companies around the world.
Research and projects regarding mushroom production that have been conducted for last two decades did not result in either new technologies or innovations. In my opinion, depleting of existing paradigm that Agaricus cultivation is dependent on compost and its condition in consequence affects yield quantity is the main reason of this situation. I think that the current paradigm should be changed. A new approach takes the idea mushroom production is a controlled process of mushroom feeding into consideration. I presented my opinion on this subject in the paper THE FUNDAMENTALS OF MUSHRROM FEEDING AND FARMING TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENTS. The first part was posted on Nutrigain blog and The Mushroom People.
A complete article is available on this website.
The paper was prepared for publishing in December of 2013 and since then numerous implementations and development projects have been carried out to verify the benefits of this new approach.
For the next three months I will be providing information regarding the results and the new findings regarding feeding, and established production models that could improve knowledge about the cultivation of mushrooms.
Material presented on my website and the ways of presentation result from my own personal experience and reflect my opinions about mushroom and substrate production based on twenty years of independent work in this field and also as the author of several books and other publications.
This website is non-commercial and is neither sponsored nor supported by any public assistance. My intention is to provide a personal contribution to the education of Agaricus mushroom production.
Information provided in the upcoming papers does not contain technological recommendations. Each mushroom producer needs to develop their own individual technologies with or without consultants in accordance with set up goals, availability of equipment and raw subtracts, and skills as well. Each individual is also responsible for the consequences resulting from introduced changes.
Announcements regarding upcoming papers and publishing dates are provided below a paper presented in 12 weekly reports.
