Automated Environmental Control Systems In Composting And Mushroom Growing

Trip to Shanghai province (China)


From 6 to July 12, TERA's Deputy Director Svetlana Kokorina visited mushroom farms in Shanghai province (China). 

During the business trip, Svetlana familiarized with the equipment used presently on the farms growing white button. She also provided advice to Chinese mushroom growers how to ensure accuracy of measurement and control of environmental parameters. 

The trip showed that Chinese mushroom growers desperately need modern technologies of cultivation due to the almost complete lack of qualified personnel in this respect.

As a result of the trip, some mushroom farms expressed interest in installing TERA's equipment. Most existing farms use a simplified technology of mushroom cultivation. The average productivity is 20-23% per ton of compost.
