Mushroom Development in Thailand
Mushroom cultivation in Thailand had been practiced since time immemorial like Bean mushroom(Coprinus fimentarius) cultivation in the Northern region,
Straw mushroom cultivation (Volvariella volvacea) in the Central region and Fan Mushroom(Schizophylum commune) cultivation in the Southern region.
But the using new technology in producing mushroom pure culture and spawn was started in 1946 by Prof.Dr. Karn Jaranavicharn
who has been honored by Thai as “Great Guru for Mushroom in Thailand” .

Well no matter what I said I couldn't get the brother to use the Cols advice. we went for o to1 kilos days to 16 kilos a day in five days. How did that happen I took over and did what the Col, siad. Sometimes it's just easier to do it yuorself then trying to get someone to understand. That being said it's still ride season and I'm going
They say seeing is believing we shall see.

Looks lonely doens't it
This is our first oven. Brother wanted to use wood, so we did a trial run kept a fire going for five hours. The water inside kept boiling for about 30 Mins after the fire went out. We will do three more of these two to cook with each while letting the others cool. When they cool we will add the spores, Haven't set that up yet.
Hoping to do a 160 a day using these,
I wonder if fours hours on the fire would be enough?
Got to crawl before you can walk. That would be sufficient fot 1,000 a week

Me too, the idea is you heat water to point of steam pasturize the subtrate before adding spores. The you got about a 60 day wait before you can use them. So in the bottom of the barrel is a small amount of water.
The method I posted before required four hours of fire. Using gas would require two hours of steam. So cutting the difference to three hours was what I was hoping for.
This will be our first try, So it will be a learning experience,
We added 2K more of Nong Faa excellent supply this time producing in three days. We arw running 16 Kilos day now, that sure feels good v compared to 0 product days. Have another 2K of Nong Faa coming next month. We will try to produce our own Khon Kao after that.

Can you give us the new protocol the Col helped you with to get up to 16kg per day ... also could you explain the milk sugar spray you used ... maybe the recipe and application rate ... I have done a lot of small scale mushroom production and when I pasteurize my substrate I place a wire probe thermometer into the center of one bag and start timing 90min once it get to 140f but keep it below 165f as that will start to kill off the beneficial bacteria... are you pasteurizing or sterilizing your substrate bag's .. do you know the temp your bags reach in the center ???
I am thinking of making my own packs now too ... I like the idea of the pre mix formula to cut down on the work load ... i also can make my own spawn grain, agar work ... I have done everything from a spore print up till now, I built a still air box and have my sterile technique down to a tight system. with no contamination any more .... long learning curve with that and a lot of mistakes along the way.... but you do learn a lot more by making mistakes
really enjoyed reading this thread and was hoping to learn a few more tips to increase yields.. and you eluded to that with the milk sugar spray ... sounds a bit more natural than the super mix hormone spray ..
Thanks again and hope your still picking

If anyone is interested in oyster mushroom spores just send me a message. Sister in law and husband next door to us does spores and grows the oyster mushrooms in her farm. We are outside of Kampeangphet. She sells spores to other farmers and is well known in the province. She has years of experiance doing the mushroom farming and the spores.

Anyone else get lots of bar/fruit type flies in their mushroom setups?
It's not a real problem at the moment, it's just that the colony is growing and I'd like to know how to deal with it before it potentially gets out of hand.

Hello All, ran across article, back home these's were good eating.
India: New method for growing Shiitake mushroom
Among various cultivated species of mushrooms, Shiitake variety has a good demand among consumers for its taste. Particularly in Northern India consumers prefer this mushroom since it is believed to be medicinal in quality. China and Japan are currently the bulk producers of this prized mushroom variety.

I found bags mushrooms in the Minburi market some years ago, this market has a gardening session in the entrance. I think in chatuchak or another big market in Bangkok you can find it easily.

Is it cooling the place? Did you feel any difference? I mean the shrooms.. growing faster than before? Nice Workaround!

I have a plan to start a project of automated humidity and temperature control around december 2014 in nakhon sawan area, in my project I will use arduino microcontroller and sensors. we can create a topic here only about this stuffs and share our knowledge. would be nice!

I'm here new, but i would like to ask:
Is it possible to make a mixture for mushroom growing from sawdust, rice bran, gypsum, lime and calcium (or magnesium) sulfate, pasteurize it in bags and than mix it with mushroom spawn and put it in shelves? Or is there easier way how to create this mixture for mushroom? And the other question is, do you know any good websites where to buy mushroom spawn?
Thanks a lot for your answers

new to this topic, I am up in Surin and would be grateful if anyone in this part of the world knows where I can buy spores, particularly Hed Korn and Hed Nahng Fah.
