Sample text

Just before the fungus has colonized all the substrate, the caps are removed and the surface of the sawdust is mechanically scraped to give a flat, even surface or cone-shaped depression. Fruiting body primordia are initiated by dropping the temperature to 10–12°C and adjusting the humidity to 80–85 percent. The temperature is then further reduced to 3–5°C for three to five days, during which time the stalks begin to elongate. When the stalks are about 2 cm high, the temperature is raised to 5–8°C and the mouth of each bottle is surrounded by a tall, paper or plastic, cylindrical collar.

Typically four flushes are harvested. In contrast to the labor-intensive systems used in China, Japanese production is largely automated and based on unit trays, each containing sixteen wide-mouthed polypropylene bottles fitted with caps containing an air filter. Following sterilization in an autoclave, each bottle is inoculated with spawn inside a clean room. Sterility of the room is ensured by maintaining absolute cleanliness, pumping in filtered air and using ultraviolet germicidal lamps. The bottles are then taken to climatically controlled rooms where they are incubated at a temperature that suits the particular strain being cultivated.

During the spawn run the substrate becomes paler as it is colonized by the fungus. Fruiting occurs through perforations cut in the bag or over the exposed surface if part or all of the bag is removed. High carbon dioxide concentrations reduce the size of the caps; consequently, adequate ventilation is essential. Each bag often produces three to four flushes of mushrooms. The bags are rested between flushes and successive fruitings are induced by soaking the bags in water. A simpler process popular among farmers in China involves pasteurizing the bagged substrate instead of sterilizing it.
