The MushTV project has brought together composters, growers, industry experts, producer organisations and researchers to investigate production challenges for the industry – compost green mould, Brown Cap Mushroom Virus, fungal diseases of mushrooms and the use of chemical disinfectants in mushroom production. The key findings have been summarised in this short video which includes the best practice recommendations.
The European mushroom industry has come together to work with the main providers of applied mushroom research to focus on Trichoderma and Virus, two major problems for the industry. Disease control has been compromised by the withdrawal of key pesticides and disinfectants by the EU in recent years, such as the withdrawal of approval for formaldehyde as a disinfectant and carbendazim fungicide for Trichoderma control.
