Mushroom research and development
In the R & D department, we not only strive to preserve the strains to ensure the stability of the spawn varieties but also develop highly yielding varieties contributing to the profitability of mushroom growers. Furthermore, we hope that growers will enjoy cultivating mushrooms with satisfaction due to our highly productive spawn.
Research on the physiological ecology of edible mushroom.
Development of new varieties, preservation of mushroom strains and analyzing nutritional components.
Inoculation and incubation of productive strains, product inspection, quality management, new mushroom cultivation test and management.
Substrate preparation, inoculation/incubation, inspection/shipping
The spawn production is done in fully clean area with high tech facility.
Spawn inoculation to incubation achieved under strict quality control and finally shipped to cultivator after product inspection and approval by the Inspector.
Spawn sales and cultivation technical support/production promotion and sales promotion activities for log shiitake mushrooms
At our company, we provide individual cultivation technical guidance while visiting the site on a regular basis so that the cultivation of customers who have purchased the spawn can proceed smoothly.
We also provide management advice such as designing cultivation facilities according to each management and cultivation conditions, setting the cultivation scale, selecting varieties, and market information for selling shiitake mushrooms in an advantageous manner.
in adition, we hold seminars for shiitake growers every year in various parts of Japan to improve the cultivation skills of growers.
What is special of Fujishukin spawn ?With our sawdust and thimble spawn its expected that spawn running will be enough for harvest in 6 month. Our spawn manufacturing technique enable logs to fruit. When it inoculate until March it will be able to harvest in August of the year.
Sawdust spawn for log/ High speed spawnSawdust spawn consists of sawdust inoculated with the desired variety. An inoculation tool is required for inoculating the sawdust spawn into the logs. It can adjust the volume of the spawn amount as you like. After inoculation, the log holes are finally sealed with wax and the mushrooms are expected from the inoculated hole once the spawn run is over. Our sawdust spawn is manufactured by our original method so that the spawn run is quicker and fruiting can be achieved in the autumn of the same year.
Thimble spawn/ High speed spawnThimble spawn is bullet shaped made up of sawdust. A hammer is not required and it’s easy to inoculate into the log holes. We have 2 types of thimble spawn. One has Styrofoam lid and another one has no lid. This type of spawn is easy to manipulate for the beginners in order to make good logs.
Plug spawnPlug spawn consists of wooden pieces. For the plug spawn inoculation it needs to make holes on logs with drill and insert using by hammer. Although the inoculation of plug spawn is simple, spawn run takes long time and mushrooms can be harvested only after 18th month of the inoculation.
