*Note that some mushrooms are poisonous! Don't eat unless you know! If in doubt, identification by a professional mycologist is recommended. You may contact Purdue Plant and Pest Diagnostic Laboratory (P&PDL) for analysis. The Purdue Extension office can assist you in sending in a sample to P&PDL for identification ($11 fee). The local Extension office cannot determine edible/non-edible mushrooms in-house.

Grants & Financial Assistance

Note that other funding sources (primarily in the form of loans) may be available from USDA Farm Service Agency (see your local USDA Service Center), Farm Credit Mid-America, banks or other lending institutions.
