Those damn farmers
    #4253272 - 06/03/05 07:58 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Lemme ask you folks this:

I am doing my searches in a pretty rural part of alabama with about 30 pastures within 30 minutes driving distance. Do you ever have the problem of farmers in your region who spray their pastures with fungicide? I have spent roughly 5 hours in the past 2 weeks searching various pastures under optimum conditions (60+ degrees low temp at night, 80s in the day, heavy rain within the past 72 hours of searching)Have not found a single cap. only thing i have noticed that did survive anything was these little thin stemmed navy blue-gray brittle shrooms growing out of the moldy hay bales

Also, I am not really sure about what time to go to get them. Some say to me any time of the day, others say that the sun will kill them all as soon as morning has passed. Will somebody clear that up for me?

The sun will not kill them, but in very dry weather, it will dry them out and hurt them.

Best time is still after a rain, around 12-48 hours after that, because they're still growing.

I prefer to pick right before evening(around 6pm) because it's not too hot, and I have daylight to pick, and the mushrooms have had the whole day to grow.



The best time is probably the morning though, imo. If it rains at the evening of Day A(Monday) a good time to go would be Tuesday at around 6pm, and Wednesday around 6/7am. You have good time for the mushrooms to grow, and not too much time so that they don't have the moisture to grow, or have the sun to dry/kill them.


--------------------
So it goes.

Farmers do not use fungicides for the purpose of killing hallucinogenic mushrooms. It would cost thousands of dollars (fungicides aren't cheap!). Farmers have better things to spend money on than stopping a few people from picking hallucinogenic mushrooms in their fields.

Edit: As far as the time of day goes, it doesn't matter. Cubensis are very stout mushrooms and can handle the sun just fine.

don't farmers use fungacides on grain crops to control ergot?
hence, we use only organic rye berries or rice or wheat for cultivation?

of course they dont spray dung with it, thats just not worth their time. but could treated grain be injested by cattle and effect in-mootro germination?

I don't mean to be talking about something as if i knew what i was talking about...Simply because i dont. I just know that i have been on multiple cow pastures that have had not a single shroom many many times. i have gotten the explaination on more than one occasion that seems to match up with what mitchnast is talking about.

Yes, some farmers feed from the government which prevents fungal growth, most don't, however.

Sorry, i already put words in your mouth.... can't take back what somebody already said for you :wink:...

I am about to leave this alone, but before i do, gumby and all you other masters of the shroom world:
Would you be lead to believe that the only reason i am not finding is just bad luck, or looking in the wrong places?

I've been to fields that seemingly do use fungicides. Next to the patties is a brown powder substance (shaped kinda like pellets, but desintegrates when touched). Maybe they do that to kill the mushrooms so their cattle doesn't eat them?  :grin:
