Cultivated mushroom production in Russia has been growing steadily in recent years. Production increased by 80.2% to 86,300 tons in 2020. This is nine times higher than in 2016 (9,700 tons).
Preferential short-term and investment loans are the key state support measures for mushroom producers. According to Mikhail Glushkov, director of the National Union of Fruit and Vegetable Producers, production optimisation will enhance industry development.
