Spawn producer Sylvan held a workshop for modern mushroom farm growers in Hungary at the end of October.
The topic ‘How to maximise the yield of Sylvan A15 by measuring evaporation’ was presented to 18 participants from Hungary and Romania by well known mushroom growing consultant Harry Hesen from Sylvan Holland.
Hesen: “Measuring evaporation and the vapour in the growing room is a good tool to overview the energy discharge during mushroom production and the measurements can help improve the yield and mushroom quality.”
