Ongoing project

Marsh Lawson Mushroom Research Centre (MU16004)

Key research provider: The University of Sydney and Applied Horticultural Research

What’s it all about?

Beginning in mid-2017, this project supports the running and development of the Marsh Lawson Mushroom Research Centre (MLMRC) at the University of Sydney. The MLMRC is a world-class facility dedicated to mushrooms, and the research that takes place there will help the mushroom industry drive innovation, adopt best practice and tackle issues, while encouraging new expertise in the industry.

During the life of the project, the facility will grow in size and capability, with the addition of new growing rooms and a purpose-built compost research facility.

There is a steering committee for the centre and its work, which has aligned the operation of the MLMRC to the Mushroom Fund’s Strategic Investment Plan and will help progress research needs and ideas that will be fulfilled through the centre.
