Enter the total weight of the mushrooms and the total weight of harvested dry substrate into the Mushroom Yield Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Mushroom Yield.

## Mushroom Yield Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Mushroom Yield.

MY = WM / WDS * 100

Variables:

- MY is the Mushroom Yield (%)
- WM is the total weight of the mushrooms
- WDS is the total weight of harvested dry substrate

To calculate mushroom yield, divide the total weight of the mushrooms by the total weight of harvested substrate.

## How to Calculate Mushroom Yield?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Mushroom Yield.

- First, determine the total weight of the mushrooms.
- Next, determine the total weight of harvested dry substrate.
- Next, gather the formula from above = MY = WM / WDS * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Mushroom Yield.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total weight of the mushrooms = 300

total weight of harvested dry substrate = 600

MY = WM / WDS * 100** **= ?
