why fungi are grown in humus-rich substrata ?

Asked by निकोदिमुस 7th June 2017, 5:53 PM
Answered by Expert

Fungi are saprophytic in nature. They utilize the organic matter present in the substratum.  Humus is a carbon-based, organic substance rich in organic matter. When fungi are grown in humus-rich substratum, they absorb their food in the form of nutrients from humus. During nutrient utilisation, the fungi secrete some extra-cellular enzymes which break down the complex compounds into simpler ones which can be easily absorbed the plants.
