Well, first, "Us" is really me,
Ralph Kurtzman, although I do work
with some others who may beuseful to you. My
home page tells some things about me, so this page
will fill in other information. However, if you want more
about me, you can check the Marquis Who's Who that I am
eligible for. Frontiers of Science and Technology, or those that cover the
geographical areas where I live.
If you want help with a mushroom growing business and live in a country
that gets help from USAID-supported
organizations, you will want to talk to them.
USAID is some of the good U.S. Government foreign policy. If you don't know if
works in your country, the US Embassy will tell you. Most countries who were
part of the Soviet Union and many African, Asian
and Latin-American countries are helped.
I consult both as an individual and in connecition with USAID. Consulting is not telling you
that I know
everything and giving all the answers. I try to know as much as possible, so that I can
be as helpful as possible, but I learn when
I consult. For example, there are hundreds of suitable
substrates, I am still learning about some that require special conditions.
The day I stop learning will be
the day I am ready to quit. I try to help you learn to think out answers to your problems, I won't
every time you have a new one. However, these days I am usually available by email, SMS or telephone
Another of my activities is serving as co-editor of Micologia Aplicada International, a small scientific
of applied mycology. I includes mushroom cultivation, but it also includes many other things.
