Casing Soil

Here in RPC, the casing soil for champignons is made from dug lowland peat, which is extracted in the unique Oster site, the territory of the municipality "Roslavlsky district" of the Smolensk region.

The uniqueness of dug peat (raw materials) lies in its characteristics:

  • deposits structure;
  • ash content no more than 10%;
  • high moisture capacity, no less than 600%;
  • mass fraction of moisture, no less than 80%.

It is important to note its characteristics which are lumpy, fibrous structure, capable of absorbing and retaining moisture in a large volume. The reserves of mushroom peat do not contain inclusions of the mineral part, namely sand, clay - which indicates the purity of the peat deposit.

Our peat deposit was created by nature itself for champignons growing!

The optimum quality of both dug peat and the casing soil of LLC RPC is controlled at all stages of production: extraction of dug peat, production of casing soil, shipment of the final product for professional mushroom cultivation.

LLC "RPC" offers:

  • dug peat (without deoxidizing agents);
  • casing soil (pH not less than 7.2 with the addition of limestone flour or defecate).
  • "big bag" packing - 1m³.

The casing soil for the industrial cultivation of mushrooms from the RPC meets all the requirements that contribute to obtaining maximum yields and harvest.

  • stimulates the formation process of the fruiting body of the mushroom;
  • prevents the formation of a crust on the surface of the casing soil after watering;
  • perfectly absorbs and retains moisture;
  • does not contain pathogenic microflora;
  • prevents compost from drying out;
  • does not pollute the fruiting bodies of mushrooms;
  • contributes to the most intensive growth of the mycelium;
  • loose, lumpy texture provides efficient gas exchange between the substrate and the surrounding air.

Soil for industrial cultivation of champignons

The soil is prepared on the basis of a high level decomposition (low moor) dug-out peat with the addition of limestone materials.

  • stimulates the fruit formation process;
  • prevents compost from drying out;
  • absorbs and retains moisture well;
  • without harmful pathogens and diseases;
  • does not pollute fruiting bodies.
