ABSTRACT



The economical efficiency of the application of an increasing hydrogel dose in cultivar mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus (Lange) Sing. Imbach) has been experimented in controlled weather conditions. It was found that the application of a 50g·m-2 hydrogel dose is not economically proved due to the lack of yield significant increase. In the cultivation of this particular variety of mushrooms, the optimal hydrogel dose shouldn’t be low than 100 g·m2.

Key words: Production efficiency, hydrogel, cultivar mushroom.
