This manual provides essential information on how to grow mushrooms and gives details for the three most cultivated mushrooms: Button mushroom, Oyster mushroom and Shiitake. Furthermore, cultivation practices for ten other mushrooms are explained, as well as marketing aspects, feasibility studies, mechanisation, climate control, farm management, pests and diseases and post harvest handling. High tech cultivation of White button mushrooms receives much attention. Mushroom Cultivation IV consists of the complete 2003 third edition, updated with new chapters on Biological control of pests and diseases, Circular economy (separation and recyling casing soil, upcycling waste), Liquid spawn, Innovations in energy saving and sustainable energy production, Understanding the Mollier diagram, Supplementation in Agaricus cultivation and Combining greenhouses and mushroom cultivation. Two new appendices have been added: Quality control of compost with NIR and a list of suppliers to the industry. 

"This book will absolutely overhaul your understanding of mushroom farming. The insights you'll be able to find within the book are applicable on commercial and hobbyist levels of cultivation. I cannot recommend this book more highly to cultivators looking for a really solid and extensive look at mushroom cultivation. If you're looking to make this into a profession I highly suggest that this book makes it into your study. I know of no other book that goes into such detail on the subject. Extremely pleased and appreciative."  - Jordan Hutchison -
