In recent years, edible mushrooms factory production has been developing rapidly, equipped with a multitude of facilities and equipment supporting the shiitake mushroom stick cultivation mode, which can fully realize the whole process of mechanized operation. This paper introduces the main processes of shiitake mushroom factory production, which include shiitake mushroom stick making process, stick sterilization process, cooling inoculation process, solid and liquid strain cultivation process and mushroom emergence process. Factory production of shiitake mushrooms improves product quality and production efficiency, reduces the economic cost of cultivation, which is essential for the future prosperous development of shiitake mushroom industry.

Keywords: Shiitake mushrooms, stick making, sterilization, inoculation, strain culture
