why would a field stop producing?
    #347730 - 06/24/01 02:41 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

just wondering if anyone knows why afield would stop producing cubes? i ask because i used to go to this field that would produce probably at least 15 cubes on a bad day and about 70-80 on a good day and now i cant find a fuckn trace. this field became popular around with some of my friends too. but what would stop the production of the mushies like that? raping the fields and not thumping the caps? i havent found a cube there in 2 yrs. thanks all.........

I've heard some people talk about farmers getting the shits and putting anti-fungacides in their cattles grain. Apart from that it could be over-harvesting. Once you take somethings population down below a certain point they don't have the numbers to keep producing.

Like crops, cattle are also transplanted from field to field while grasses regrow. They can grow for two or three years and then disappear for a few and then come back. It also depends on where the cattle are. IF they are moved from paddock to paddock then the shrooms will come up at different times of the year.
And Wombat, please do not spread misinformation here. Farmers do not feed their cattle fungacides to rid fields of mushrooms that is pure bs.

And then again a lot of fields never have any magic shrooms and many fields do. There is no single answer except ecological climatic weather differences in the rain and climate.

Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.

With all due respect MJ, I was very careful in my response to say that "I have heard people claim" and not "I know as a fact". I'm not spreading misinformation, just presenting an alternate view to your own. One, which I admitedly know nothing about. However, if farmers can put anti-fungicides in their other crops, what's stopping them doing it to their cows food? It wouldn't be because they can't. Lack of motivation, maybe, but who can say with any certainty what some hick farmer is likley to do?

The average farmer isn't gonna spend money to add fungicide to grain to prevent shrooms. Sometimes the grain they purchase was grown with fungicides and there can be residual effects. Usually this is not the problem. MJ is right, the conditions from field to field vary. Farmers rotate fields and cattle, they also till under fields which can stop production for awhile. If it had shrooms, it usually will have them again, at some point.
