Description: Mushroom-producing white-rot basidiomycetes can grow rapidly and produce heavy mycelial growth on treated conifer wastes with extractive-degrading fungi. This study evaluates the treatment of scaled-up conifer wood chips with Ophiostoma piliferum (Cartapip 97). Treated conifer chips were used as substrates for cultivating mushroom-producing basidiomycetes of various Pleurotus spp. This treatment reduced the extractives by 30% to 90%. These mushroom-producing lignolytic white-rot basidiomycetes can easily colonize and produce mushrooms on treated conifer wood chips.
