Mushroom harvesting courses. Mushroom picking school in Poland. 26.04.2023-28.04.2023


This post is also available in: English Russian

UMDIS Mushroom Information Agency organized the School in Poland. In English. We teach how to harvest 1,2,3 breaks mushrooms, how to do proper thinning, what quality is and how to make it better. We also show you step-by-step what you need to implement on your farm when harvesting to get more kg per m2. Motivation system and organizational skills.

This time the group was from 3 countries: Poland, Bulgaria and Morocco.

The instructors of the course were Tomasz and Anela Stanislawski, Anela’s mushroom farm.


These are Poland’s top mushroom picking specialists. More than 60 courses have been conducted on this farm, 300 mushroom growers, foremen, collection department managers have passed through the trainers. They have been conducting trainings since 2008.

The venue is a mushroom farm near Wolsztyn, Poland (1.5 hours from Poznan).

The courses were designed for supervisers, heads of the harvesting department and picking managers, as well as for mushroom growers who want to learn how to organize their own work on the farm so as to have better yields, excellent mushroom quality and faster picking.

The courses were held on the basis of the existing production. Participants learned all about selective harvesting of mushrooms, a harvesting practice that maximizes yield and quality by applying a methodology that determines the correct sequence and period of harvesting.

As part of these courses, participants learned techniques for thinning mushrooms, harvesting first, second and third wave.

The course program included topics such as:

  1. Proper organization of the mushroom harvest.
  2. Functional responsibilities of the collection foreman.
  3. Scheduling a collection that helps keep you from collecting at night and on weekends.
  4. Techniques for collecting 1-2-3 waves.
  5. What the speed of collection depends on.
  6. How to design and implement an incentive system for assemblers – that really motivates.
  7. Product Quality Characteristics.
  8. How to reduce the percentage of substandard.
  9. Department’s documentation of collection.
  10. Important details: how the pickers hold the knife, what the posture should be, how to move the carts, how to change clothes and shoes.

We give a certificate to all participants.
