Note to readers
Every five years, following the Census of Agriculture, the estimates of area, production, sales and investment in mushrooms are reviewed and reconciled to ensure coherence with the Census of Agriculture. As a result of this review, revisions back to 2008 are now available and are reflected in the data in this release.
