Videos offer the A to Z of mushroom cultivation

From Steve Gabriel (), crossposted from the Northeast Forest Mushroom Growers Network blog.

A new series of short how-to videos produced by the eXtension Forest Farming community is now available for viewing online.

The videos feature Ken Mudge, associate professor, Department of Horticulture, who has been engaging in shiitake mushroom research and education for almost ten years. Ken covers a wide range of topics, including the four stages of cultivation, mushroom life cycle, inoculation, maintenance, harvest, and optimizing production with strain selection. These video offer an excellent visual companion to the recently released publication Best Management Practices for Log-Based Shiitake Cultivation in the Northeastern United States.

View the Forest Farming Shiitake Mushrooms playlist.

The eXtension Forest Farming website is an excellent resource for growers and features a number of videos on production of other forest farming crops including ginseng, goldenseal, and ramps (wild leeks).
