  2. Alexander Tsarev, 22 2014:

    If the compost is too dry, then for a full life of microorganisms metabolizing ammonia is not enough water. If water is too much, the compost is too heavy and dense, leading to a lack of oxygen for the same microorganisms. In the first case, getting rid of the ammonia will be difficult, but the mushrooms will be with some chance to use the compost. In the second case, the consequences will be more negative, as anaerobic microorganisms will work in pasteurization tunnel, resulting in unusable for living mushroom compost.
