Disinfectants mushroom farms

  1. 1. Disinfectants Available to use on Mushroom Farms Disinfectant Type Active Ingredients Example Trade Names Use/Restrictions/Comments Chlorine Calcium/Sodium Hypochlorite HTH, Bleach, other trade names Approved for FCS at 200 ppm, general disinfecting at 600 ppm; chlorine not tolerant OM; corrosive; inexpensive; adjustment of pH is critical, chlorine is not effective unless pH is approx. 7.0 or slightly lower. Iodine Based Iodine Various Trade names, e.g: Rapidyne Approved for FCS at 25 ppm; broad spectrum disinfectant for general sanitation at 100 ppm. Provides little residual; may stain porous surfaces; sanitizer of choice for hospitals; mid- level cost. Oxidizers Chlorine Dioxide – various types/levels of stability Various Trade names, e.g: Oxysan Mildly corrosive, different complexes and types; the more stabilized chemical need acids to activate; effective under some OM load; approved for FCS at 100 ppm; GS 500 ppm. Hydrogen Peroxide or Hydrogen Dioxide Various Trade names, e.g: OxiDate Unknown efficacy; initial trials suggest more effective against spores than mycelium. Peracetic Peracetic (peroxyacetic) acids Active peracid chemistry; Peracid chemistry is similar to that of the oxidizing disinfectants. Various Trade names, e.g: Oxonia Unknown efficacy; corrosive, expensive; labeled for FCS; check individual label for ppm. Low residual antimicrobial activity; kills broad spectrum of microorganisms. Phenols Combination of: ortho-phenylphenate (OPP) and/or some potassium or sodium based phenol derivatives Various Trade names, e.g., Premisan, One- stroke, Germ Warfare Does not have FCS tolerance; Tolerant of some OM load; Increasing OM load rapidly decreases effectiveness. Use on nonporous surface only (NO WOOD); Use on A/C or other equipment requires thorough rinsing with potable water. Quaternary Ammonium Quaternary Ammonia Chlorides Various Trade names, e.g: Verticide, PermQuat, SantiQuat Clings to substances. Stable under low OM tolerances; does not easily dissipate. Stabilized Formaldehy de Hydroxymethyl-n- propanediol, formaldehyde, and dimethyl benzyl ammonia chloride Various Trade names, e.g: Lysofume DCR Broad spectrum, noncorrosive Wood Preservatives Copper-8-Quinolinolate Propiconazole PQ-57 Safetray Approved for wood surfaces between crops, prior to filling. FCS = food contact surfaces; GS = general sanitation; OM = organic matter
