GANZHOU, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) --An environment-friendly tea tree mushroom (agrocybe aegerita) industry base has been established in Qingxi Village of Ganzhou City, east China's Jiangxi.

The base covers a series of fields in the production chain like fungi production, mushroom planting, further processing, fertilizer processing, etc.
