Mushtella improves spawn quality for all types of mushroom

13/11/2012

We continue to research and develop on our spawn so as to continuosly improve quality and meet high demand from our clients.

In pursuit of that dream mushtella is making a few adjustments to how we work with out our clients. The following adjustments are with immediate effect.

Clients are now required to inform us of their orders 30days in advance, 15 days before the collection date a deposit if 30% will be due and the balance will be paid on collection.

We have now reverted to hulls spawn due to a number of considerations. We will no longer sell grain spawn. The price of spawn is now $3.50 per kilogram. We will no longer sell quantities less than 50kilogram per each order.

Any inconvinience caused is sincerely regreted, the adjustments are meant to improve spawn quality and efficiency on our side.

New types (shiitake, auricularia judae,ganoderma lucidum,hericium erinaceus and paddy straw as well as new pleurotus strains) are now ready for sale.

Mushroom growing in Zimbabwe: which type to grow?

19/06/2012

Which type of mushroom should I grow? This is a question many people ask themselves before they venture into mushroom growing in Zimbabwe. It was a choice between button and oyster, but that’s a thing of the past starting from now going into the future as Mushtella is out to revolutionise the mushroom industry in many ways.

One of the ways is the introduction of new types of mushrooms and also increase variety within one type of mushroom. As an example:shiitake- there are a number of strains available throughout the world which have different shades and growing parameters and many other factors. Mushtella’s first step is to bring in new types and then others factors later. Mushtella is also looking at partnering with mushroom farms to increase these types. There are costs involved in importing and then doing further research and development, Mushtella seeks technical and financial partners to achieve this.

We have introduced the following types and strains:

Shiitake (Lentinula edodes)
Hericiu erinaceus
Volvariela volvacea
King oyster
Golden oyster
Auricularia

We will introduce the following before the end of the year:

Ganoderma lucidum
Maitake
Agaricus birtoquis (warm weather button)
And many others

We are introducing mainly types we had like to grow, however we will import other types as per growers request bearing in mind the afore mentoned partnerships.

In an effort to revolutionise the industry we are giving free spawn to all existing growers for them to try out. Yes you heard me right we are giving out free spawn. May growers note that such spawn will be given when we have excess capacity and prior notice has to be given, also note that Mushtella reserves the right to refuse to give such spawn and we will stop the offer at any time without notice.

Here is a chance for you to start growing other types.

Mushtella is also giving consultancy in the production of these mushrooms. If you are new in the industry do your research before choosing which type to grow, those already in the industry know the market better.

Mushtella also sells kits, currently we sell kits for the following:

Oyster (pleurotus ostreatus)
King oyster (pleurotus eryingii)
Shiitake
Golden oyster (pleurotus citrinopleatus)

Happy mushroom growing zimbabweans.

Quality of spawn is crucial to yields of all mushroom types

12/04/2012

As a mushroom grower you need to use spawn of the highest quality for success. Carefully inspect spawn when you buy and ensure it has no contamnation.

For that reason we need growers to tell us in advance the quantities of spawn required 15days in advance so that we give you. Quality spawn. That way we are able to give you spawn when its most viable. Growers prefer us to stock spawn but for quality reasons we can’t.

Of all the grey strains I have gown, the OY7 is unique. Quick colonisation,high yields and aggressive against contaminants.

You can only get this at mushtella call me for your orders.
