   YIELD EXPERIMENTS- 6x4

Fungi grows from straw, but how can you get even more out of  the same weight of straw? Research the internet link, then make your own experiments growing in milk-shake cups. Adding small amounts of food can make a big difference. 6  packs of  4.

24 milk shake cups are supplied with equal weights of chopped straw and spawn. The straw is prepared by one of the suggested methods.  Spawn is then mixed in.

Yeast, sugar, molasses, bran, flour, milk powder, and other foods can be added. Amounts are suggested to start your experiments from. The effects of varying heat, and light can also be compared.

Scales accurate to 2gms are needed for effective comparisons.
