The 2nd International Spent Mushroom Substrate Symposium will be held September 17-20, 2006 in Philadelphia PA, USA. This spent mushroom substrate (SMS) symposium is being organized by Penn State University, American Mushroom Institute and the International Society of Mushroom Science (ISMS).
The 1st International SMS Symposium was held in Philadelphia, March 1994 and the published proceedings continue to be a valuable resource to industry and academia.
The 2006 conference promises to embrace the latest advances, challenges, and opportunities for SMS, one of the most important issues confronting the commercial mushroom industry. The symposium will feature speakers, paper presentations and poster sessions emphasizing scientific and technical aspects pertaining the use and disposal of sms.
