The Rural Development Administration (RDA) of Korea has developed and patented the country’s first artificial cultivation technology for the rare, globally recognized morel mushroom.

The morel mushroom, known for its chewy texture and unique flavor, is considered a gourmet ingredient in countries like France and Italy. Since the first successful artificial cultivation in China after 2000, the skyrocketing demand has driven the price up to 500,000 KRW (Korean Won) per kilogram of dried mushrooms. After three years of research, the RDA of Korea has successfully developed this artificial cultivation technology and plans to transfer it to young farmers and farms interested in cultivating new crops.
