Spent Mushroom Substrate
    #4273710 - 06/08/05 11:19 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

what do you all do with your spent substrate?

does anyone have any ideas for commercial applications of said substrate?

we've been toying with the idea at the portabello farm of selling our spent substrate as compost... any thoughts on this? any links to people who are already doing it or places where i can learn nutritional info on spent substrate?

i've also heard of spent oyster substrate being used as cattle feed... anyone know people selling this or doing this?

any thoughts/ideas appreciated, thanks :smile:

Here's the Spent Mushroom Fact Sheet from Penn State

Here's a paper on the environmental effects of SMS, and it has some great ideas about marketing it back to the community in the form of a value-added product. With the right marketing I think SMS has the potential to be as valuable as the mushrooms to keeping a viable running business.

Here's a list from the American Mushroom Institute of farms reselling their SMS


Here's a link to the AMI color brochure for SMS to help you market it:


Here's an amazing paper on the usues of spent substrate, it really covers all of them, and it'a a two parter, so here's both links:



Hope that get's you started if you need more, just ask, I'll find more...
Light and Love,
