Phase I Formulation & composting

Back to Tour

Unlike green plants, mushrooms lack the ability to use energy from the sun because they do not have chlorophyll.  Rather, mushrooms extract ALL of their energy in the forms of carbohydrates and proteins from the medium in which they are grown.  Some call this medium mushroom substrate; others call it mushroom compost.

Because it is the source of ALL food for the growing mushrooms, it is crucial that the mushroom substrate meet very specific requirements for the growth and fruiting of mushrooms.

Mushroom substrate consists of a scientific formulation of various materials consisting principally of wheat straw, and dry poultry manure; smaller amounts of other organic materials may be added.
