Abstract:  The mushroom yield in a coppice in Ilomantsi, eastern Finland, was studied during the first three years following aerial MCPA ester spraying. In all three years the yields obtained from the coppice were greater than the yields from the adjacent mixed coniferous forest. MCPA treatment had no acute poisonous effect on the mycoflora but indirectly it caused pronounced changes in the total mushroom yields.
