Title: Comparative Tests of Casing Soils of Different Origins
Author: Adrienn Tóth, Anna Szabó, József Szarvas, András Geösel
The importance of casing materials in button mushroom cultivation is increasing. The limitations on peat mining, the growing prices and the different cultivation techniques require a regular evaluation of casing materials that are currently available on the market. In our experiments we examined two casing soils of different origins (Dutch and Hungarian) in the laboratory and in small scale cultivation.
