Mushroom composting and cultivation
Mushrooms grow on compost. The compost is prepared by specialized companies. The time from the mixing of the raw materials until the delivery of the compost to the production farms takes four to six weeks. The exact time is dependent on the raw materials and the system used by the compost company.
Once the compost has been applied in production farm, it takes about 16 to 20 days before they can start harvesting mushrooms. Harvest occurs from two to three weeks. After that, it is no longer profitable to harvest further.
