Mushrooms in the News: 10-11-202
This week, The Beet unveiled their 5 reasons to make mushrooms a regular part of their diet. Their main points focused on the taste, nutrition, and sustainability of mushrooms. They also shared the signature Wicked pan-pressing technique for making show-stopping mushroom steaks with crispy edges and juicy centers seasoned just right. Use oyster mushrooms, Portobellos, lion’s manes, maitakes, the bigger the better.
The USDA granted nearly $4 million to Penn State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences to support an interdisciplinary, multi-university team of researchers as they investigate technologies designed to address labor shortages on mushroom farms. The four-year USDA-NIFA grant will support continued work to improve manual harvesting speed by adjusting production practices, reducing the dependency on manual labor through the development of automated harvesting and packaging machines, and assessing the economic impacts of the proposed technologies.
