Happy Mushroom Growing!!!

Mushroom Farming | Profitable Business Opportunity

A mushroom farming business can be a mean of big profit in just a few weeks with considerably low start up capital investment to start a business. A person who has little bit of idea in the science & technology of mushroom growing and has an own building for having the farm – mushroom farming business will be the perfect option for him to start. The cultivation of mushroom is an art and requires both study and experience.

Mushroom Farming Expertise

An individual who has worked before on a mushroom farm can start his own mushroom farming business. Otherwise it is always better to have a technical training on mushroom farming to gain expertise. You can contact JMP Mushroom for specific training for mushroom farming at their contact hotlines.

Mushroom Farming Business Plan

Starting a small business like mushroom farming requires some specific business plan. Work out a detailed budget; write out a clear strategy and objectives of your business, what will be the variety you want to grow and what will be your target market like domestic or export.

Choose Variety For Mushroom Farming

Different types of mushroom have different production cost and it is important to decide on a budget depending on amount of money available and the long term investment benefit. A good variety to start mushroom farming with is the Oyster mushroom. Other profitable and easy to grow varieties are Milky Mushroom, Paddy Straw Mushroom etc.

Environment For Mushroom Farming

In mushroom farming business consider the environment for mushroom production. Different varieties require different kind of environment. As example oyster mushroom has some basic environment requirement like temperature, humidity, good ventilation, light and sanitation.

Get Spawn For Mushroom Farming

You will need to have spawns to start the culture. You can produce your own spawn by using a sterile culture or you can by ready-to-inoculate spawns form the suppliers. Producing spawns can be cheaper in the long run, because the startup cost will be high in this case.

Prepare Substrate For Mushroom Farming

Mushroom can be cultivated on a large number of agro-waste having cellulose and lignin that helps in more enzyme production of cellulose that is correlated with more yield. You can use straw of paddy, wheat and ragi, stalk and leaves of maize millets and cotton, sugarcane bagasse, saw dust, jute and cotton waste, dried grasses, used tea leaf waste, etc. you can also use some industrial waste like paper mill sludge, coffee byproducts, tobacco waste etc. Some of the popular method of substrate preparation is steam pasteurization, hot water treatment, fermentation of composting and chemical sterilization.

Pack the Bags/ Boxes/ Trays For Mushroom Farming

The bag making process normally involves composting the substrate, filling the bags with composted material, spawning and then incubation till maturity stage.

Incubation For Mushroom Farming

Arrange the spawned bags/ boxes/ trays in a dark cropping room on raised platform concentrate to stop any threats any natural light getting into the room. Keep the growing area at specific temperature that depends on the variety.

Fruiting In Mushroom Farming

While various species require different temperature regimes all require high humidity 70-80% during fruiting. Frequent spraying of water is necessary in the cropping room depending upon the environmental humidity.

Protection Measures For Mushroom Farming

The mushroom is suspect to attacks from flies spring tails and mites. The crop is prone to fungal disease and also can have the diseases of yellow blotch, brown spot etc. you will need to have some specific control measure according to the attacks.

Mushroom Farming Harvesting & Storage

The right shape for harvesting can be judged by the shape and size of the fruit body. The mushroom should be harvested before spore releases. It is advisable to pick the mushrooms at one time from a cube. There are two types of storage involves in mushroom processing- long term and short term. Freshly harvested mushroom can be stored at low temperature (0-5°c) for maximum two weeks. Dried mushroom with 2-4% moisture, can be stored for 3-4 months in sealed pouches without any change in taste.

Mushroom Farming Marketing

High quality commercial cultivation of mushroom is a very profitable proposition as it is in good demand both in domestic and foreign market. You can go for local market penetration by making available your product to the retailer and vegetable shop.

Six Steps to Mushroom Farming

Growing Mushrooms

Mushroom farming consists of six steps, and although the divisions are somewhat arbitrary, these steps identify what is needed to form a production system.

The six steps are Phase I composting, Phase II composting, spawning, casing, pinning, and cropping. These steps are described in their naturally occurring sequence, emphasizing the salient features within each step. Compost provides nutrients needed for mushrooms to grow. Two types of material are generally used for mushroom compost, the most used and least expensive being wheat straw-bedded horse manure. Synthetic compost is usually made from hay and crushed corncobs, although the term often refers to any mushroom compost where the prime ingredient is not horse manure. Both types of compost require the addition of nitrogen supplements and a conditioning agent, gypsum.

The preparation of compost occurs in two steps referred to as Phase I and Phase II composting. The discussion of compost preparation and mushroom production begins with Phase I composting.

Straw Mushroom Farming, Method 1

Volvariella Volvacea - Paddy Straw Mushroom Cultivation

The culture of mushroom is gaining popularity in the Philippines. Mushroom is a delicacy and is really accepted as vegetable. Its present cultivation in this country is limited, perhaps due to insufficiency of planting materials and the limited local knowledge about its culture.

Mushroom growing requires little space and time and farmers can make use of their rice straws following harvesting. Mushroom can be grown the whole year round provided a good storage of rice straw is prepared.

This article illustrates the fundamental techniques involved in the culture of banana or rice straw type of mushroom, Volvariella volvacea.

Oyster White Mushroom

Pleurotus Ostreatus var. Florida

Oyster Mushroom

The prototypic Oyster mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus has long been a favorite of mushroom hunters, especially in the spring time in lowland, hardwood forests. A prolific producer on a wide array of substrates, strains of this species are plentiful and easy to grow. Enjoying a worldwide reputation, specimens of extraordinary size have been collected from the wild. For instance, in the fall of 1998 near the north coast of Sicily, Salvatore Terracina, a farmer, collected a P. ostreatus nearly 8 ft. in circumference, 20 inches thick, and weighing 42 lbs.! For the prepared and strute cultivator, cloning this monster could have resulted in an extraordinarily productive strain.

Mycelial Characteristics: Whitish, longitudinally radical, soon becoming cottony, and in age forming a thick, tenacious mycelial mat. Aged mycelium often secretes yellowish to orangish droplets of a metabolite which is a toxin to nematodes. This metabolite deserves greater study.

Microscopic Features: This mushroom produces white, to slightly lilac, to lilac grey spores.

Suggested Agar Culture Media: Malt Yeast Peptone Agar (MYPA), Potato Dextrose Yeast Agar (PDYA), Oatmeal Yeast Agar (OMYA), or Dogfood Agar (DFA). Optimal growth seen at pH 5.5-6.5.

Spawn Media: Rye, wheat, milo, sorghum, corn, and millet. Sawdust spawn in not needed for indoor cultivation methods. However, sawdust spawn is ideal in the inoculation of stumps and logs in outdoor settings.

Substrates for Fruiting: A wide array of agricultural and forest waste products can be used, including but not limited: straw (wheat, rye, oat, rice, and barley straw); corn stalks, sugar cane bagasse; coffee pulp; banana waste; cotton waste and cottonseed hulls; hardwood sawdusts; pater by-products; soybean waste; palm oil by-products; agave waste; and even the pulp remaining from tequila production! The pH at make-up can vary between 6.0-8.0 but should fall to an optimum of 5.0 at fruiting for maximum biomass production. 

Martinez et al. reported yields of 132% biological efficiency (4 flushes) from coffee pulp that was fermented for 5 days, pasteurized, and inoculated with wheat grain spawn. Further, they found residual caffeine from the spent substrate was reduced by more than 90%. (Caffeine represents a signigicant toxic waste to streams in coffee growing regions of the world). Martinez-Carrera validated the results with yields in excess of 100% biological efficiency in the same substrate adn presented the first model for utilizing this abundant waste product. 

Platt published studies on the utility of cotton straw as a substrate for this mushroom. Their yields average 600-700 grams per kilogram of dry cotton straw, in other words 60-70% biological efficiency.

Yield Potentials: 75-200% biological efficiency, greatly affected by teh size of teh fruitbodies harvested, and the number of flushes orchestrated.
