On 28 November, spawn producer Amycel and Wageningen University and Research (WUR) announced the introduction in the market of Allerpo, a new sporeless Oyster Mushroom variety.
Allerpo has been developed in the WUR team of Arend van Peer and Johan Baars (www.wur.eu/mushrooms). According to Amycel, growers have been asking for such a strain for a long time and Amycel and WUR entered in an agreement allowing Amycel to produce and market Allerpo in Europe, starting January 1st 2020: “Allerpo is an attractive grey Oyster Mushroom variety giving quality mushrooms and good yields. A testing period allowed determining growing conditions, which are similar to most existing commercial strains. Both Amycel and WUR recognize Verbruggen’s input and motivation in helping to realize this market introduction.”
