Practical Training in Straw mushroom

Straw mushroom cultivation in Thailand has become the most lucrative business in agribusiness due to the most advance technology by Anon Biotech Centre. This great breakthrough could produce vigorous mushroom compost spawn as well as new indoor cultivation method(Anon2009 method). Currently Thailand could produce fresh straw mushroom exceed than 500,000 ton per year become the World largest straw mushroom producer. Prof. Dr. Anon Auetragul, Former UN Senior Mushroom expert who was the key person behind this great achievement, is ready to share his gained experiences in organizing Practical Training in this tropical Straw mushroom cultivation as per details attached herewith:

Straw mushroom Pure Culture Preparation
• Straw mushroom life cycle
• Straw mushroom Physiology
• Pure media by using modified formulae
• How to keep the vigorous mycelium

Straw mushroom Grain Spawn Preparation
• Selection of grain
• Soaking grain with UM92(Useful microorganisms)
• Pre-cooking grain by vacuum high pressure cooker
• Pre-mixing with mushroom additives
• Bottling and sterilization
• Inoculation and incubation

Straw mushroom Compost Spawn Preparation
• Selection of suitable materials
• Preparation of main compost
• Mixing main compost with fast decay material and additives
• Short fermenting process by boosting thermorphile
• Bagging or bottling techniques
• Sterilization and pasteurization
• Inoculation and Incubation

Low bed Cultivation Method
• Selection of materials like straw, bean pod or stalk, oil palm empty bunch, cassava peeled, fresh water hyacinth etc.
• Selection of mushroom additives by using fast decay materials or organic compost
• Site preparation
• Pre soaking mushroom substrates with UM92 mixtures
• Preparation of cultivation bed according to materials and ambient temperature
• Covering the bed with various sheet and thatch
• Controlling adequate temperature, humidity, light and air during mycelium running
• Boosting technique to stimulate the fully occupied mycelium into readily stage before pin head formation
• Controlling adequate temperature, humidity, light and air during fruiting bodies development
• Harvesting technique
• Boosting technique for the next flushing(crop) by using mushroom hormones or growth regulator or additive
• Utilizing spent mushroom compost for other mushroom or plant

Indoor Cultivation Method with Anon 2009 Model
• Selection of materials like straw, bean pod or stalk, oil palm empty bunch, cassava peeled, fresh water hyacinth etc.
• Preparation of mushroom additives
• Site preparation i.e. composting yard, composting frame, peak heating room, cropping house
• Cultivation equipment e.g. steam generator or modified boiler, ventilation fan and installation technique, lighting system, thermometer, growing tray, sprinkle, disinfectant tool
• Pre soaking mushroom substrates with UM92 mixtures
• Making compost in anaerobic condition by adding mushroom additives by using different kind of substrates with appropriate techniques
• Pre cooking with thorough turning and suitable additives
• Peak heating techniques to boost the growth of thermophile
• Pasteurization technique with live steam
• Retarding the thermophiles’ growth before spawning
• Pre cooking compost spawn with mushroom additives
• Spawning techniques
• Controlling adequate temperature, humidity, light and air during mycelium running
• Boosting technique to stimulate the fully occupied mycelium into readily stage before pin head formation
• Controlling adequate temperature, humidity, light and air during fruiting bodies development
• Harvesting technique
• Boosting technique for the next flushing(crop) by using mushroom hormones or growth regulator or additive
• Utilizing spent mushroom compost for other mushroom or plant
