Gauteng, North West, Free State, Western, Eastern and Northern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces and other Southern and East African Countries
The following three options are available:
Focus will be on the commercial technology to cultivate a range of gourmet / exotic / specialty / medicinal mushroom species with emphasis on substrate design, specialised cultivation and climate control requirements as well as business plan information. Also included is the sought-after Mushroom Substrate Design Calculator to the value of R 1932 / € 140 EURO. Although a commercial setup might be costly, the outcome will be extremely profitable.
Priority will be given to shiitake, enoki, nameko, pioppino, lion’s mane and shimeji cultivation, which is a bit more challenging and complicated as you probably would need facilities to cool down. Shiitake is sought after in both fresh and dried form, whereas the others are mainly cultivated for the fresh market.
The entire range of oyster mushroom species will also be discussed, some of which are cultivated at room temperature. Unless cultivating the king oyster or other winter oyster strains, there is no need to have expensive structures or complicated climate control systems.
