Sawdust Block Strains
Making Shiitake blocks (bag cultivation) can be a challenging process and requires equipment and experience. But for many commercial growers, block production is sometimes paired with log cultivation, especially when it is the only way to harvest mushrooms reliably year round. Bag cultivation allows mushroom production to continue by managing fruiting on blocks in a controlled climate indoors. We offer two specific Shiitake strains, LE04 and LE236, that are proven performers in sawdust block cultivation. Each 5 lb. bag will inoculate approximately 300 lbs. of prepared substrate.
