manure and compost question
    #8812861 - 08/22/08 10:04 PM (9 years, 10 months ago)

1.Why use compost instead of dried poo? I think a purpose of manure drying is to remove anmonia. Why go through additional step of making it into compost?

2.Does compost still have something to eat for mushrooms?  Decomposition must be performed by bacteria,yeast,or fungi. Doesnt composting lessen the food for mushrooms? 

3.Is it likely that bagged composts are sold by industrial mushroom growers,thus it has no use for personal mushroom growing?  Then,how can I choose a good bagged compost?
Is there any guideline to look at?

I bought a bagged compost yesterday which is made from cow manure and woodchip and the label on it reads
  C--N ratio:18

Does this sound good?  Can anyone see if this is a waste from industrial mushroom maker or not? 

I am going to add this to horse manure an other things as my bulk substrate.RR said mixing many ingredients can boost growth.
And I dont have access to fresh cow manure.
