Abstract

A commercial enzyme preparation described as polysaccharidase adsorbed on amylodextrin was added to horse manure at 200 g t-1. Composting was speeded, composting odors were partially modified and mushroom yield increased. The enzyme treatment served as a synergist for three nutrient supplements added at spawning, increasing their yield enhancing ability. Overall, conversion of horse manure into mushrooms ranged from 515 to 633 kg t-1.
