Step 1 : Mixing process
- Sawdust, paddy husk and lime will be mixed in the ratio 100:10:1 in the mixer.
- Water will be added to ensure the humidity of the substrate bag contains 60-65%.
Step 2 : Bagging
- The mixed medium will be filled into the plastic bag mechanically.
- A ring and cap will be covered on the top of the substrate bag.
- The substrate bag will be arranged on the pallet accordingly.
Step 3 : Sterilization
- The substrate bag will be sterilized at 120°c for 3 hours
- 5 pallets of substrate bags can be fitted into a boiler.
- Boiled substrate bags will be leave for cooling down process for one day.
Step 4 : Inoculation
- Mushroom spawn will be inoculated into the substrate bag in a quarantine room.
Step 5 : Colonization
- Substrate bags will be delivered to the green houses.
- Mycelium will take approximately 35-45 days for growing.
- Rejection rate for substrate bag will be controlled at 5% or below.
Step 6 : Fruiting
- Cap will be opened after 35-45 days colonization process.
- Fruiting process takes 4-5 days after cap opened.
Step 7 : Harvesting
- Mushroom will be ready to harvest after 4-5 days.
- Mushroom stalk remained on the substrate bag will be cleaned after harvesting process (if there is any).
- Harvested mushroom will be sent to packing house.
Step 8 : Packing
- Mushrooms will be packed in different packaging based on daily orders.
- 3 classification of mushrooms will be categorized as follows
- Class A (Standard Size)
- Class B (Small Size)
- Rejected mushroom
