Title: A Deep Exploration Into the Microbial Community in an Experimental Composting Condition
for Agaricus bisporus Cultivation
Author: Fabrício R. Vieira and John A. Pecchia
Substrate preparation for Agaricus cultivation is the most critical point of a mushroom production and as such has been the impetus for many studies. Among many factors involved in the composting process, the microbial ecology of the system is the underlying drive of composting, which can be influenced by composting management techniques. We evaluated three common pasteurization temperature regimes used during Phase II compost preparation for A. bisporus.
