Automated Mushroom Maintenance System

Authors(5) :-Kumaravel M, Lakshana A, Malini S, Manjuladevi S, Dr. Venkatesh C

The large, macroscopic, spore-bearing, fruiting bodies of fungi are generally referred to as mushrooms. Under the proper environmental conditions, their mycelia become tightly interwoven to give rise to the structure we call the mushroom. However, the conditions under which mushrooms form are poorly known. As a result, relatively few species of mushrooms can be cultivated. Species of mushrooms may be designated as edible/medicinal or poisonous. In this project to maintain the freshness of the mushroom, we use temperature and humidity sensor to control the motor without using manpower [5]. Thus by this method we can cultivate and preserve the mushroom in secure manner for our future uses. Nowadays some varieties of mushrooms are becoming extinct due to improper maintenance. This will affect the role of mushroom in many fields. Since it is difficult to cultivate mushroom as other species in farms. To overcome this we can use this method to preserve the mushrooms freshness by maintaining the temperature. This method will provide simplest way and increase the life span of mushroom. This will also decrease the manpower, and increase the income.
