Considerations with using Organic Mycroliquid (OML)
It is becoming obvious that because every farm is different and environment and casing materials are slightly, there is no fixed way to use this product, so it will involve a little cross testing to find out what works best on your farm.
The KEY POINTS and PRINCIPLES to consider are:
- Dose: 130ml vs 260ml. Higher dose = higher yield
- Dilution: minimum needs to be 3:1, but 7-8:1 seems good overall
- Position: keep product on top of the casing (in the pinning zone)
- Activity: Temperature/Metabolic rate is important for mycelium feeding (as always); end of case run pretty much guarantees this but need to consider 2nd dose ie not at the end of watering when all activity and metabolism slowed in 2nd flush*
*compromise in farms when a lot of mushrooms still on day of clearing 1st and need to water immediately, we suggest putting OML on last water of the day eg if it is 8L after flush off; put 6L water on then 2L OML application. Leave overnight to react with good activity in beds still, then remaining water following day.
