After the dry summer, mushrooms are now sprouting in the Ebersberg Forest.

According to expert Günther Baumgartner, this can be devastating in the long run. 

Ebersberg - Because of the dry summer, mushroom seekers didn't have it easy until August.

But after the rainy weeks that followed, according to Grafinger mushroom expert Günther Baumgartner, things are now looking better again - at least for the time being.

Rain causes a mushroom wave - but experts warn of the effects on biodiversity

Mr. Baumgartner, yesterday you were cleaning the mushrooms again, so is the harvest better again thanks to the rain?

The people are happy.

For two or three weeks there have been mushrooms in very large quantities.

From an anthropogenous point of view, that is, from a human point of view, everything is fine.

People come back from the forest with full baskets.

So everything ok?

Oh well.

Mushrooms don't primarily grow so that we have a good soup, but are part of the natural cycle, just like trees and flowers.

Normally the mushrooms always come in waves in the three to four months, this year it is concentrated on three or four weeks, i.e. one wave.

The species that should otherwise have grown in July and August only came now because of the drought, plus those that are now coming in September and also those that should actually only be in October.

Let's see how this affects fungal biodiversity in the long run.

The Ebersberger Forest is one of the areas with the most mushrooms in the area.

A striking number of Eastern Europeans are also collecting this year, and they are more grateful for everything they find.

We have people who pull their noses up if it's not porcini mushrooms.

And it's best to only take mushrooms with you that you really know and have looked at carefully.

Otherwise you can often throw away half the shovel because the mushrooms are wormy, nibbled on by snails or moldy.

90 percent of all mushroom poisoning is not because the mushrooms are poisonous, but because they are rotten.
