Differential utilization of nutrients present in the casing layer by Agaricus bisporus

Differential utilization of nutrients present in the casing layer by Agaricus bisporus

Mushroom Journal (161): 151...159

Cabutz (the solid fraction of anaerobic thermophilic digestion of cattle manure) and peat moss + CaCO3 (1:1 w/w) were compared as casing materials in the production of A. bisporus strain Somycel No. 91. Changes in electrical conductivity, pH level, laccase and endocellulase activities, and degradation of cellulose and lignin indicated that Cabutz, but not peat moss, was degraded and utilized by A. bisporus without affecting its capacity to serve as a good casing layer for mushroom production.
