Some species of Agaricus in California (including A. bisporus) appear to 
fruit abundantly only at the end of a drought; that is, a series of wet 
years will be unproductive.  In the southeastern part of the state, where 
A. bisporus var. burnettii occurs, a decade of dormancy (reproductive 
quiescence, actually) may be about average (based on less than two 
decades experience).
