DIAS, Eustáquio Souza. Mushroom cultivation in Brazil: challenges and potential for growth. Ciênc. agrotec. [online]. 2010, vol.34, n.4, pp.795-803. ISSN 1413-7054.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1413-70542010000400001.

Mushroom cultivation is rapidly expanding in Brazil because Brazilians have discovered the medicinal and culinary value of mushrooms and their economic situation has improved. However, the horticultural technology for cultivating mushrooms under Brazilian conditions is lacking. For many years, the mushroom cultivation technology used in Brazil was adapted from developed countries whose materials and climate were different from those of Brazil. In order to exploit the Brazilian potential for mushroom cultivation it is essential to develop cultivation technology for family owned and operated rustic farms as well as for modern large scale industrial operations. Mushroom species cultivated in Brazil are discussed and some approaches for future research are suggested.

Palavras-chave : Mushroom compost; casing layer; mushroom fruiting; Agaricus; Pleurotus; Lentinula.
