Example text

The covers are then removed, and the first primordia appear about the fifth day. The first mushrooms are harvested eight to ten days after spawning. Increased aeration and light levels and a slight reduction in temperature and humidity assist initiation and development of fruiting bodies. Generally there is a large first flush of fruiting bodies followed by a smaller second one. Straw mushrooms may also be cultivated outdoors when ambient temperatures are high enough to support fruiting. Cultivation beds consist of layers of water-soaked bundles of unfermented rice straw, with each layer spawned as it is laid down.

The humidity is also reduced to 70–80 percent, and overwatering is avoided in order to produce dry fruiting bodies. When the stalks are 13–14 cm high, the collars are removed and the harvested mushrooms are either sold in 5-kg bags for the wholesalers or 100-g packets for the retail trade. The mushrooms can be grown in tall narrow bags instead of bottles, but in this case the bag is only partially filled with substrate and the open extended mouth is used to support the elongating stalks. Consumers prefer mushrooms with white stalks and caps rather than the golden wild type, and this has resulted in breeding programs, particularly in Japan, for white strains.

Selective breeding has produced a range of commercially available strains, including the firmer Swiss brown strain. Pests and diseases can be a major problem, not just with button mushrooms but with all cultivated species. Bacterial blotch, viruses, and flies can wipe out a producer’s commercial venture (Fletcher et al. 1989). In industrialized countries, most button mushrooms are produced by large, efficient, and highly mechanized companies. This, in addition to the requirement that mushroom growers meet strict environmental pollution standards, means that small new growers may find it difficult to become established.
