Mummy disease

Mummy disease

12 октября 2010

diseases

I am a small commercial organic mushroom grower and I am having a problem with my mushroom growing and want to try and work out what it is and make sure the mushrooms are still edible, I have still been eating them with no ill effects! The base of the mushrooms look like the photos in Mummy disease but the stalks are not bent and the mushrooms are not browning and the yield has not decreased. However after picking some mushrooms develope a white fungus around where the cut on the stem is that looks like the base of the mushrooms in the mummy disease photos so I thought it was mummy disease so I would like to discuss this with other growers to see if I can work out whether I actually have a problem or not.

    Dear Mr. MacLeod

    It is difficult to tell you does it Mummy or not.
    It can be some other reason for it.
    Please, can you make photos of these mushrooms?
    Can you give some more details about your production, because if you so new mold, (or mycelium) or fungus ? (what kind), around place where mushroom grows it can be some other reason?
    More details about growing room, ventilation, kind of spawn, casing soil, watering, compost, can give more possibility to get proper answer.
    Generally, Agaricus bisporus is edible.
    Let we try to find what hapend.
    Sincerely
    Ljiljana
