How are mushrooms used for fertilizer?



  1. 0 Votes

    Mushrooms can go through a special process to create mushroom compost or soil (fertilizer). Mushrooms grow in a special compost made from wheat straw, hay, corn cobs, cotton seed hulls, gypsum and chicken manure. They grow under close supervision for 3 to 4 weeks. A layer of sphagnum peat moss mixed with ground limestone is added for the mushrooms to grow on. After harvest, everything is steam pasteurized and the remaining compost is mushroom soil.
