You can not add fungicides into the oyster mushroom substrate! Mycelium of oyster mushrooms, as well as mold mycelium, is susceptible to the effects of antifungal agents (fungicides). When growing oyster mushrooms the mold in the production facilities is eliminated using disinfectants.
Trichoderma, mucor and other types of mold can be eliminated only by using the correct substrate heat treatment and creating a proper substrate pH of 7.8-8.2.
