We’ll get an update on the latest developments within the BIOSCHAMP project, Gerard Sikes will guide us through his innovative mushroom farm, and we’ll have a look at the progress in the production of BVB Substrates’ casing soil.


This EU-funded research project aims to develop an alternative and sustainable bio-stimulant casing for the mushroom industry. With this, they aim to reduce the dependency on and need for pesticides. The research project contributes to improving the productivity, sustainability, and profitability of the European mushroom sector.

They have been innovating and improving for the past 25 years and strongly believe in the responsible use of resources. During this webinar we’ll have a look around at their company and talk to Gerard about their latest innovations.
