How to grow mushrooms

As a fungi, mushrooms require very specific conditions if they are to grow well enough to be harvested and sold as a Waitrose product. This insight into the process of growing mushrooms and managing a successful mushroom operation provides students with an appreciation of the many factors affecting the success of each crop, the risks being managed and the decisions which must be made, as well as the implications should the wrong decision be made.

Additional guidance is available by contacting the author directly...
