UMDIS conducted a mushroom harvesting course for mushroom growers in Ireland


This post is also available in: English Russian

A course on how to organize a mushroom harvest with trainer Lina Turovska was held by the UMDIS Mushroom Agency at Kerrigan’s mushrooms farm March 4-6, 2024.

16 course participants received practical and theoretical knowledge about the organization of the collection department at the mushroom farm. During the course, participants looked at how a picking department should be organized depending on the size of the farm, how to select and deploy mushroom pickers, and how to motivate the team to achieve a good result.

In Ireland, as in many other countries, the problem of a shortage of mushroom pickers is at the top of the list. Therefore, it is crucial to organize the harvesting process in such a way that the pickers of the mushroom show a high harvesting rate, while maintaining quality and overall yield.

Today, the minimum wage in Ireland is €12.70 per hour and Irish farms are very keen to attract new workers. Therefore, farms are willing to provide housing and additional bonuses to employees.

If you are interested in working in Ireland on a mushroom farm, post here and we will tell you where to go.
