Mushroom farming is an ancient sector, in fact the first to deal with it were immigrants returning from the Americas who planted the spores in fabulous caves, now abandoned for some time as they are not very cheap.
A mushroom farm requires considerable investments: from the substrate, that is the bed where the mushrooms are born, to the insulated cells where favorable conditions of temperature, air, light and humidity are reproduced.
Furthermore, that of mushrooms is a short supply chain: after harvesting they are selected, stalked, possibly cut and washed and then packaged to be shipped to the points of sale, all in 24-48 hours.
We will talk about it live on Saturday 26th at 11 am with many guests: in connection from Turin Massimo Longo – expert mycologist in the Cristiano Riciputi studio; Prof. Andrea Tarozzi professor of the Department of Sciences for the Quality of Life
