Increased button mushroom production in Thuringia Germany

According to the Thuringia Bureau of Statistics the 2,100 metric tons of button mushrooms were produced on a total of 77,000 square meters of land in 2015.

In the last year 58,700 metric tons of mushrooms were produced, of those 57,600 metric tons were button mushrooms, in Germany. The share of button mushrooms produced in Thuringia is 4%”
