Below is a useful document giving instructions for all areas of usage for Sporekill./ Nutriclean Disinfectant
We always state that IBC’s are agitated before they are drawn off and dilution. There are 2 alternatives; an air line cable tied to a pole that can reach the bottom. Most of the time that works very well.
If however the product has been stored for a long time or maybe subject to warm conditions during shipment, it may have ‘dropped out’ more than usual (it is a suspension). Another alternative is to use a two handle ‘plaster mixer’ and to extend the shaft by cutting in two and welding both ends into a tube collar so that it can reach the bottom of the IBC. Within 10 minutes all should corrected and it should remain in suspension after that for another few weeks.
Sporekill is great for cleaning wooden trays. Although plastic can line and protect the bottoms of the trays there is no good way of controlling the moulds on the sides of the boxes. Many of these contribute to spotting and quality loss during the crop.
Sporekill has high detergency for penetrating wood and when it dries it seals and traps mycelium and spores in wood thus reducing spores forming on the sides during cropping.
1.5-3 L Sporekill in 200L of water (0.75-1.5%) depending on cleaness of trays.
Plenty of volume is important as can be seen on the video.
In this farm, the trays are thoroughly wetted down after emptying and left on the yard for a week before reuse. Trays remain ‘cleaner’ during cropping.
Sporekill is now available in 20L drum size and we will discontinue 25L.
The reasons for this are:
- We can fit more drums on a pallet (up to 3 layers of 16 drums)
- With same drums as Mycro products, it means we can load mixed pallets of disinfectant and supplement because they nest properly
- Easier to carry because of the density and heavy weight of Sporekill

In the last two years we have made big moves forward in solving how to increase yield from current stagnant levels. The key is in having nutrition in two different growing zones at the same time; hence our continued approach with casing supplement with simple ‘water on’ solution.
We were not sure whether the yield increases were coming from water or dry matter and we are now sure it is the latter. You can, like others pick up 2-3kg/m² without interacting with the compost, so is worthy of serious consideration.#
We have found a simple solution for watering on supplement on the casing; during the case run
Potential yield increases of 2-3 kg/m² more with high quality mushrooms are achievable with the right technique.
