My institute is currently involved in elucidating a new anomaly in
mushroom farming: the formation of clusters.
So: Is there any evidance for the presence of mycoplasms or lower
fungi such as plasmodiophora to cause disease in higher
Clustering is the anomalous growth of mushrooms in a big tight group
consisting of 5 to 10 fruit bodies on a single clubroot like stipe.
Any educated guesses about the possible cause of this clustering
effect are gratefully invited.
