The National Mushroom Improvement Center was approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of China in February 2012, and opened in 2016. It is the only national platform for edible mushroom improvement technology in China.

Targeting technical issues in the edible mushroom industry in China, the center combines technological research, development and integration in a systematic way. It conducts the usability evaluation of germplasm resources, innovation in germplasm materials and breeding technology, breeding of new mushroom varieties, preservation and maintenance of mushroom spawn, spawn quality control techniques, and cultivation technologies appropriate for new varieties. In addition, the center strives to be developed into China's comprehensive research and development platform for mushroom germplasm resource efficient use and spawn-related technology, and also to become a national center for high-quality mushroom spawn preservation, maintenance and supply.
