TEFA™ C – the new casing soil for the production of mushroom

The utilisation of optimum casing soil is a key factor in the production of mushroom. Casing soil has to meet requirements, which are today only met by specifically treated black peat. Black peat is predominantly sourced in the Baltic countries, with transport cost to the worldwide mushroom producers often largely exceeding the material cost.

CORMO develops the new casing soil TEFA™ C, which meets the expectations of industrial producers in terms of mushroom yield and production safety. TEFA™ C can be produced in the regions of its consumption!
