North Korea: Promoting Scientific Industrialization of Edible Mushroom Production
It is learned that North Korea has vigorously promoted the scientific and industrialization of mushroom production and has achieved many successes. The successful completion of the use of straw fermentation method cultivation of Pleurotus ostreatus technology used in production, is a representative achievement.
It is understood that this technology is Pyongyang Medical University, National Academy of Sciences, Ministry of Agriculture Central Edible Fungi Institute and other units of scientists and researchers brainstormed R & D. After analyzing the physico-chemical composition of straw and the biological characteristics of Pleurotus ostreatus, they solved the scientific and technological problems of substrate fermentation and seed germ cultivation, edible mushroom germination and their cultivation and management, and realized the industrialization of Pleurotus ostreatus production .
In addition, they also developed energy-saving mushroom production equipment such as straw cutting machines and sterilization furnaces. There are also breeding new varieties of edible fungi, edible fungi in the production process of waste matrix recycling to improve the efficiency of raw materials, work has also made achievements.
