Mushroom Casing is the last layer of media in commercial mushroom growth. Peat is used as it will hold 10 times it's own weight in moisture, and mushrooms thrive in this environment. Casing is a natural environment for mushrooms to grow in. Casing also gives the mushroom a vibrant natural color which many other media do not give. Mushroom casing consists of a blend of wet peats which are neutralized. There are many different mushroom growing systems throughout the world, from mushroom bag growing systems, mushroom tray systems and Mushroom Shelf systems. What all theses mushroom growing systems have in common is they all use Mushroom Casing Soils.

Our Mushroom Casing 

As Harte Peat are in control of every step of our Mushroom Casing Production we have the ability to offer custom blends of casing to all our commercial mushroom growing farms.  Our Mushroom casing production routines allows us to have strict control and exacting standards on production quality and mushroom casing costs to you the grower. 

The variations are based upon the type of growing system and the customers preference. Being the most popular mushroom worldwide the White Mushroom Casing mix is constantly in production. We are often asked for variations in the White Mushroom Casing Mix, as some customers prefer a (for instance) a higher or lower Moisture content, this is down to customer preference, their environment, of even a simple element of a reduction of shipping costs.

Mushroom Casing Support

It is always the small detail that counts. The Basic recipe for our mushroom casing as every professional mushroom grower knows varies very little. But that is where we specialise. Our experience shows that a fractional difference in moisture content combined with natural variance in peat can make significant difference in both output and quality of the mushroom crop.

Mushroom growing systems vary worldwide and we customise our casing to suit the mushroom grower. 

When your mushroom casing is bringing your expected yields, we store your custom blend in our laboratory and reproduce your custom mushroom casing as you require. Should your crop vary or your situation change we will work with you until your casing is back on target and yielding as expected.
