Intercropping Hoophouse-Grown Tomatoes with Oyster Mushrooms (Pleaurotus ostrearotus) Reduces the Need of Phosphorous Fertilizer in Wyoming
Hoophouse tomato production in short growing season region remains vital to meet local consumer needs in Wyoming. Yield optimization is a challenge especially due to poor soil fertility and specifically, phosphorous (P) limitations. Sustainable integrated system that augment tomato yield by enhancing P is a key to successful production of tomatoes and possibly other vegetables. Planting edible mushrooms with tomatoes can help improve crop yields and provide additional high value crop but the information on such practice for the growing conditions in Wyoming where soil is marginally productive ...
