Abstract:
One year old spent mushroom compost was leached with water for 24 days and treated with steam at 60 ºC for 8 h to eradicate pathogenic organisms. The results of addition of leached spent mushroom compost (LSMC) extract in large scale confirmed a positive effect for total yield between treatments and controls. The results also indicated a significant difference on protein content of mushrooms as compared with controls. First flush was harvested 1.5 days earlier as compared to those controls.
