Red matsutake planting can also protect the environment
In the harvest season, the disposal of crop stalks becomes a major problem. Burning will pollute the environment, and rot in the ground will cause the crops to rot. Using rice stalks from agricultural wastes as a cultivation base material to grow red matsutake, not only enriches the food of the citizens, but also allows the effective use of straw that was difficult to handle in the past. The soil for planting red matsutake is somewhat unusual. It uses straw, A culture material made from agricultural wastes such as rice husks. It is understood that each acre of red matsutake planted in an agricultural garden can consume 15 acres of rice straw. After using the red matsutake mycelium to decompose the straw, the remaining residue can also be used as organic fertilizer and directly returned to the field to grow vegetables. The "red matsutake-vegetable" rotation model not only solves the ecological problems such as environmental pollution and resource waste caused by the waste and burning of a large number of crop stalks, but also effectively improves the soil and enhances soil fertility. Moreover, compared with conventional planting, the crop rotation mode can obtain better economic benefits.
Stropharia rugosoannulata, also named Red matsutake. It was first discovered in the United States in 1922, and successively discovered in Germany and Japan in 1930. Germany was first domesticated in 1969, and later developed into Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and the former Soviet Union, and gradually became a European and American country. Cultivated edible fungus. In 1980, China introduced the experiment and promotion of Red Matsutake in scientific research institutes in Shanghai, Fujian province and other places.
Let us talk about the characteristics of red matsutake.
In China most growers prefer to use straw, Wheatgrass, Corn stalk, rice husk, corn cob, saw dust, etc. The cultivation methods of Raw, fermented, or hafl fermented & half raw Material are all accepted. For larger outyiled, full fermentated material is recommended.
60%~65%RH(Mycelium) Holding the material, the moisture is best when the water flows out a little bit from the fingers. 85%~90%RH(Primordium air humidity)
Oxygen and carbon dioxide
During the mycelial growth stage, proper ventilation should be provided. If the air is not circulating, the growth will be inhibited; during the fruit body development stage, sufficient oxygen should be guaranteed, otherwise the growth of the fruit body will be inhibited. Please remember that only if the air is fresh, the red matsutake can be of high quality and high yield.
Mycelium can grow when the PH value is 4.5-9, the most suitable is PH6-7
During the growth of the mycelium, it needs to be protected from light; during the growth of the fruit body, 30% of the light is needed.
When the mycelium grows to two-thirds of the cultivated material, covering soil can promote the formation of fruiting bodies. In actual cultivation, most of the materials are taken from the spot, and the pastoral loam with a looser texture is selected.
