MUSHROOM COMPOST
Derived from various organic materials used to grow mushrooms for the food industry. Ingredients vary by locale, and include wheat straw, cottonseed meal, cottonseed hulls, gypsum, peat moss, and ground limestone. After the mushroom crop is harvested, this material is composted. The composting process produces heat, removes moisture and odors, and produces a product ready to package.
