Spent mushroom compost (SMC) as a nutrient source in peat based potting substrates


Mushroom Science XIII Volume 2 Proceedings of the 13th international congress on the science and cultivation of edible fungi Dublin, Irish Re ic, 1-6 September, 1991: 645-650
Spent mushroom compost (SMC) as a nutrient source in peat based potting substrates
Analysis of SMC peat mixes for levels of available nutrients showed that a rate of 5% of SMC by vol. supplied more K but much less N than a control mix based on peat and inorganic fertilizers. Early growth of tomato seedlings in SMC/peat mixes did not respond to rates of SMC >5% and was reduced when the SMC rate was >20%. When the seedlings were grown to a more mature stage, there was a response up to 20% SMC. Plant performance was not as good as in the control substrate.
