Abstract

Production of substrate for growing mushrooms is cited as the most critical step in the cultivation process, with drastic consequences on yield and quality of production, in addition to directly influence the economic viability of the activity. At the end of the composting process, the nitrogen content and C/N ratio of the substrate can be corrected by supplementation applied with the addition of the mushroom spawn. Although widely used in North America and Europe, in Brazil, few are known about this technology, besides not find any commercial supplement to use. In this sense, this project aims at developing handcrafted supplements, which have the same characteristics of trademark supplements in other parts of the world, where the technology of mushroom production is more developed. So be held 10 experiments to best apply these technologies, with the participation of a multidisciplinary team of professors and researchers working in universities and research centers in Brazil and abroad (Spain and Argentina).
