Product description

Champost or "spent mushroom compost" is a by-product of mushroom cultivation. It is a mixture of mushroom substrate and casing soil. The mushroom substrate consists of horse manure, straw, chicken manure, gypsum and water. The casing soil is composed of peat and lime and lies on top of the substrate. The peat in the casing soil is an excellent water reservoir for the mushroom. After the cultivation of mushrooms, the mushroom substrate and casing is directly loaded on truck and ready for disposal. From then on, the mixture is called "spent mushroom compost (SMC)". SMC has several benefits for end-users, such as high organic matter content, free of pathogens, free of odour, homogenous, acidity neutraliser, year round available, … It can be used in several sub sectors: horticulture, arable farming, arboriculture, …

One ton of spent mushroom compost contains on average 340 kg DM, 214 kg OM, 6.3 kg N, 4.0 kg P2O5, 8.7 kg K2O, 2.4 kg MgO, 0.9 kg Na2O, 2.3 kg Cl and 45 kg CaO.
