Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation

Organic Mushroom Farming and Mycoremediation is a complete guide to indoor and outdoor mushroom cultivation ranging from the fundamentals of mushroom ecology and life cycle to extremely advanced and experimental techniques the author developed for morel cultivation, “training” mycelium to respond to bacteria and environmental contaminants, and more. The content of the book is heavily weighted towards cultivation—there is only one chapter on mycoremediation—but the key point to understand is that throughout the text the author discusses important principles of “fungi behaviour” that form the foundation of mycoremediation. Tradd approaches cultivation with a holistic framework, stressing that an understanding of the relationships between organisms and different kingdoms of life is critical to successful cultivation, remediation, or other applications. His approach is also distinctly scientific, guiding readers through lab work and experimentation and constantly reinforcing the idea that the most important skills in mushroom cultivation are careful observation, and the ability to “think like a mushroom”.
