Ongoing project

Mushroom industry communication program (MU18001)

Key research provider: Team Rowley

What’s it all about?

Beginning in 2019 to carry on from Communication program for the Australian mushroom industry 2016-2019 (MU15001), this investment delivers effective and timely communications to ensure Australian mushroom growers and other industry stakeholders are kept up-to-date with the latest mushroom R&D and marketing investments, developments and outcomes, and other industry news and information.

A number of regular communication channels continue to be produced and maintained by the program, including but not limited to:

  • The quarterly Australian Mushrooms Journal, delivered electronically

  • The monthly Industry Update e-newsletter

  • Support with the maintenance and upgrading of AGORA, the industry’s pest and disease knowledge management and communication system that is housed within the industry website (grower log-in at the top right)

  • YouTube videos on R&D investments.


If you’re involved in the mushroom industry and don’t currently receive the Australian Mushrooms Journal or Industry Update via email, contact Chris Rowley at to be added to the distribution list. Likewise, if you have team members or know of any additional people that would benefit from a wider understanding of the issues affecting the industry, encourage them to be in touch.

For support accessing AGORA, contact Judy Allan at or on 02 6767 1057.
