BDC Jahrestagung 2011

  • On the 30th of September and the 1st of October, the 63rd annual general meeting of the Bund Deutscher Champignon- und Kulturpilzanbauer (BDC) took place in Bensheim near Darmstadt, Germany. Main topics were organic growing, due to a visit to an organic mushroom farm, and spawn, because of the presence of 4 international spawn manufacturers.

    Franz Schmaus, chairman of the BDC, says thank you to the guys from Loecke organic mushroomfarm.

    The farm, with strict hygiene rules, made an exception to its non-visitor rules for this unique occasion.
