According to data available, more than 10,000 mushroom-growing grounds have been built this year across the country.
The indoor and outdoor grounds are suited to the growth of mushrooms. Cultivated in Korea are mainly pleurotus ostreatus, lentinus edodes, agaricus bisporus, flammulina velutipes and auricularia auricula. These kinds are tasty and highly nutritious, so they are used for dishes.
These mushrooms grow without much effort everywhere all the year round. The production of mushrooms is being popularized and industrialized along with the introduction of mushroom-raising technique and researches into new varieties.
Some ten new kinds of mushroom including agaricus bisporus nos. 429 and 35, pleurotus ostreatus nos. 9325 and 50, pleurotus florida nos. 1 and 8, and agaricus edulis have been gained and produced. They are suited to the climate of Korea.
Humus for growing mushrooms with agro-byproducts and shrubberies as main material is produced by an industrial method. Rational methods of raising mushrooms in cavities and other places and on fields have been studied and disseminated.
