Mushroom cultivation fits in very well with sustainable farming andhas several advantages:
It uses agricultural waste products
A high production per surface area can be obtained
After picking, the spent substrate is still a good soil conditionerThis Agrodok contains detailed information on how to grow threekinds of mushrooms: oyster, shiitake and wood ear mushrooms. Thesemushrooms are rather easy to grow on a small scale. Cultivation of thecommon white button mushroom and of the rice straw mushroom isvery different and will therefore be dealt with in another Agrodok.Much of the information presented here is from my book “Mushroomcultivation and appropriate technologies for commercial mushroomgrowers”. By concentrating on three mushroom species only and onrelatively simple technologies, I hope readers can obtain a sustainableprofit from mushroom growing.Bram van Nieuwenhuijzen was the director of the Mushroom Grow-ers’ Training Centre (nowadays known as C Point) at Horst, The Neth-erlands, for a number of years. He is currently involved in mushroomcultivation projects in several countries as an adviser through PUMNetherlands Senior Experts in The Hague.Peter OeiChairman ECO Consult Foundation and Visiting Professor Fujian Ag-ricultural University
