Mushroom Cultivation / Mycology as a career? Is it practical?
    #25732675 - 01/08/19 10:51 PM (2 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys, I have been studying plant biology as well as basic mycology for the past six months. I have a relatively limited understanding; however, at this point, I truly believe I would like to spend my life doing something in this field. I am genuinely not sure what my possibilities are, say with no socio-economic, financial, or geographical restrictions? I'm just curious to see what kind of careers there are in the field I'm most interested in? Thanks guys..

I guess you could

-continue your education, find a lab and work under someone who studies mushrooms

or

-obtain lots of money somehow, then keep doing mycology as a hobby

or

-start a business selling mushrooms and mushroom accessories

Thank you for the advice m8, I appreciate it. I never completed highschool sciences because, 1. I didn't have to, and 2. I never thought I was interested. I'm Completing basic grade 11 biology and grade 11 chemistry as well as my independent studies. I'm only 21, but I figure I have to use what time i have to do something useful. I want to make a change in this world, maybe in a medical-mycology related field? I'm not sure. Thank you, man.

i'm twice your age, and still searching for my place. back in university and everything.

mycology rings like marine biology to me. might not make a ton of money, but if you love it, there's no substitute.

active areas of myco research include engineering materials and bioremediation. also pharmaceutical/antibiotics/anti-aging/anti-cancer type stuff. living will be more easily made in applications rather than pure science research. if you can figure out the next major broad spectrum antibiotic and patent it, your great great grandchildren will be set for life.

go ye forth and find your bliss.
