950g Slow-release nitrogen supplement

£4.00

950g of slow-release organic nitrogen supplement.

Nitrogen is not available from slow-release supplements immediately. This allows the mushroom mycelium to fully colonise the substrate whilst the nitrogen is locked-up and unavailable for contaminants to feast on. By the time full colonisation has occured, the nitrogen begins to become available - providing much improved crops with less risk of contamination usually associated with high-nitrogen substrates.

We often get asked what is the ideal ratio of slow release nitrogen to substrate. Unfortunately, there is no hard and fast rule. The more you add, the higher the yield of mushrooms will be, but the more likely you are to suffer contamination.

Each grower must establish their own compromise between higher yields and contamination losses, and this will vary for different growers, with different substrates, different mushroom cultures, different air spore loads, different degrees of cleanliness etc,.

As a guide, We would recommend growers experiment within the range of 1-10% slow release nitrogen to establish what works best for them.
