Some locational developments of mushroom growing in Northern Ireland 1959/1960-1968/1969

Acta Horticulturae (40): 425-444

Some locational developments of mushroom growing in Northern Ireland 1959/1960-1968/1969

Over the period reviewed, the paper shows that: (a) there was a change in location of the main area of production from three coastal counties to two inland counties; (b) this change in location constituted a move towards closer proximity to the main source of compost raw material, but a shift away from the principal Northern Ireland sea ports and marketing centres in Great Britain; (c) the development of the new main location of production was associated with a significant increase in the numbers of producers and production from farm-type holdings, a period of static farm incomes and the development of improved marketing and transport services; (d) in the two inland counties the proportion of total production from specialist mushroom holdings declined from 90 per cent. to 45 per cent., while in the three coastal counties the level remained constant at 90 per cent.
