Feeding mycelium in the casing zone
A great article on the science going on in your casing layer and how that interacts with our products. Please click on the link below.

Here is the 1st part of a series of 4 articles giving detailed information how mushrooms feed and how based on this we can move yields over the current 38kg/m2 barrier using our products.

Our thanks go to Nikodem Sakson for his comprehensive research both theoretically and practically using this new approach and technology.
Growers using our products must remember to add much more water than they normally do
There are 2 reasons;
1. To replace to water that went into extra tissue
2. To mobilise the nutrient source to the mushrooms
This typically means between 25 and 40% more water between 1st and 2nd flushes compared to normal when using MycroNutrient products. Some of this water may need to go on 1st flush at pinning stage.
As the old adage says….When you think you have enough water…Water Again!!!!
“We have been using MycroNutrient in all our crops for a little over 4 years when Stuart asked us to test it while they were establishing their patents for it. We have been very happy with the results, we feel we get better quality mushrooms and timing coming into crop is at least 24 hours earlier. This was very apparent last year when a shipment was delayed and we ran out for 2 weeks. We are happy to endorse MycroNutrient Liquid”
