The complexity of the mushroom market
Production of cultivated mushrooms today - one of the most promising directions in agriculture. This year, the volume of mushroom production can reach 55 thousand tons. At the current pace of development of domestic mushroom producers will be able to supply the domestic market in 2020. The main demand is for mushrooms. The proportion of these fungi in the total production is about 70%. There is a growing demand for oyster mushrooms, but due to problems with compost production of these mushrooms becomes unprofitable, indicators of growing fall. Exotic mushrooms, for example shiitake, eringi, shimeji, which in recent years began to appear more frequently in retail, yet remain a niche product due to the low demand and the complexity of the technology of cultivation.
