  13. 13. Goal and context • Commercial edible mushroom cultivation is a ‘big business’ world-wide with a total production exceeding 27 million tons. • A 25-fold increase during the last 35 years, which is combined with a high increase in the respective per capita consumption. • Pleurotus species are of particular interest because: i. their production amounts to ca. 30% of the total, corresponding to the fastest growing and most profitable section of the mushroom market. ii. they are commonly grown on pasteurized wheat straw, however, they can also be cultivated on a wide variety of agro-industrial residues and urban organic wastes. • Substrate composition and environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, oxygen, carbon dioxide and light are anticipated to exert an effect on mushroom yield. 14 © Dr. Dimitrios Argyropoulos/ 28-Jun-21 / Slide 14
  14. 14. 16 Chang S.T. et al. Environmental Factors O2 (ppm) Light (lux/h) CO2 (ppm) Temperature (°C) Data must be collected and analysed in a systematic manner over the production processes along the mushroom value chain in order to quantify the effects of different environmental schedules on mushroom yield. https://grocycle.com/
  15. 15. Aim and objectives The aim of the MUSHNOMICS project is to demonstrate the feasibility of dynamic data- driven analytics for multi-domain mushroom production environments in order to optimize yield, lower costs and improve the economic viability of this agri-food sector. Specific objectives: • AI Integration: Develop best-performing artificial intelligence (AI)-driven algorithms for yield prediction of mushrooms in a prototype MUSHNOMICS Module with IoT devices for real time production management and demonstration. • Data Exchange: Develop the MUSHNOMICS Digital Platform to exchange data and information from production to points of sale along the mushroom value chain. • Innovative Business: Develop innovative business models based on the IoT-enabled MUSHNOMICS Module for informed decision making by mushroom entrepreneurs. 18 © Dr. Dimitrios Argyropoulos/ 28-Jun-21 / Slide 18
