Mushroom: Growing Demand Outweighs Supply

Plant scientists are generally of the view that there are many edible wild plants but due to their non-domestication, the society is inhibited from consuming those edible plants and fails to get the nutritive content therein.

Cultural values and individual perceptions have also taken people away from food sources which can cause the very persons to salivate. Amongst such food plants which Cameroonians were not hot about but have developed a new love for it, is mushroom; which was often considered as poisonous and deadly.

Despite its seasonal nature, many people want to have the ‘beef’ on their table all round the year, pushing a few passionate farmers to venture into mushroom farming. Yet, demand keeps soaring in major markets while the gradual steady increase in supply can’t satisfy the mushroom-happy mouths.

Since mushroom production requires damn conditions, its production is usually retarded in between the months of November and March, but when the rains return fully as is the case now, the demand for mushroom even grows bigger.

Jomo Marie, a housewife in Yaounde has been scouting for fresh or even dry mushroom at the Mvogt-Betsi food market for the past 45 minutes to no avail. She was told by a petit trader that all the consignment which arrived in the market that day had been scrambled for before 8:30 am. Jomo left the market disappointed, hoping to return the following day very early in the morning in order to have a grasp of the delicacy.

Before coming to the Mvogt-Betsi market, Jomo had been to the Acacia market but could not find the umbrella-shaped plant. A similar deficit in the supply of mushroom can also be observed in other parts of the country as demand remains high.

Though a kilogram of fresh mushroom costs FCFA 2,500 while the same quantity of dried mushroom costs as much as FCFA 12,500, the cost isn’t deterring consumers from the product. A passionate mushroom farmer in Bamenda, Kari Jackson Bongda says for 10 households, eight demand mushrooms mostly for medical reasons.

Notwithstanding, he notes, many others consume mushroom for nutritional reasons and generally as a substitute for beef. Kari indicated that about 80% of households in the North West Region consume mushroom.

Going by officials of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, some 50 tonnes of mushroom are produced annually in the country, but shortage still persists. They indicate that even if the country produces some 100 tonnes per year, it will be readily consumed.

The domestication of mushroom was introduced in the country in 1996 by a team of Chinese, and as at 2010, government had pumped in FCFA 40 million to boost the sector. Obala in the Centre Region remains a major production basin.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said

In the August 2021 Ethereum network upgrade, the London hard fork contained the Ethereum Improvement Protocol, EIP-1559. Instead of the first-price auction mechanism where the highest bidder wins, EIP-1559 introduces a “base fee” for transactions to be included in the next block. Users that want to have their transaction prioritized can pay a “tip” or “priority fee” to miners. As the base fee adjusts dynamically with transaction activity, this reduces the volatility of Ethereum gas fees, although it does not reduce the price, which is notoriously high during peak congestion on the network.
    As the saying goes, pride goes before the fall. Prior to the crash, many media outlets lauded crypto’s record-breaking market cap. For instance, Cointelegraph ran the headline, “Crypto markets tag $3T combined market cap for first time,” and Fortune gushed about crypto’s good fortune: “Cryptocurrencies hit market cap of $3 trillion for the first time as Bitcoin and Ether reach record highs.” The cryptocurrency market has literally exploded in terms of total number of coins and crypto tokens, as well as in trading volume. This is where market capitalization comes in as a way of measuring how big the currency and the whole market is. Let’s take a look at what market cap means in terms of cryptocurrencies and how it works. The term “market capitalization” is widely used for traditional securities but is also of significance in analyzing cryptocurrencies. Market capitalization is simply the measure of the value of an asset. When applied to cryptocurrencies, we can define it as a measure of a cryptocurrency network’s value. It can be calculated manually. To calculate the market cap of a given asset, multiply the circulating supply by the price of one unit of the asset.

    The FBS college football season is scheduled to get underway on August 27, and it will run until December 10. Most NCAAF teams will play between 10 and 13 regular season games, depending upon the number of teams in their conferences. 52 Years Strong! A Trusted Leader In Sports Picks, Best Bets and Predictions Since 1971. Air Force brings the most prolific rushing attack in college football. The Falcons continuously lead the nation in rushing yards per game, and through two games this year, they already have over 600 yards on the ground. They have also only surrendered 10 points total in two games, even if the level of competition was relatively low. This team has experience on both sides of the ball, and it comes down to quarterback play, as that was the biggest piece to replace from last year. Air Force can and will control tempo, and if a team can’t stop the run, it has no chance to win.
