Alex Lussi of Swiss mushroom producer Gotthard-Pilze picks a shiitake mushroom inside a former ammunition bunker of the Swiss Army near the town of Erstfeld, Switzerland August 29, 2015. In eleven former bunkers Gotthard-Pilze produces some 24 tons of shiitake mushrooms per year. With the threat of foreign invasion a thing of the past, thousands of military bunkers and fortresses in Switzerland have been put to commercial use, from hotels to data centres, museums to cheese factories. The Swiss army has sold most of these decommissioned strongholds, but about a thousand unused bunkers remain, many still disguised as houses and barns.

Istvan Bagi's dog Mokka, a six-year-old Labrador, searches for truffles in a forest near Jaszivany, east of Budapest August 6, 2014. Truffleminers, the company Bagi manages, rents 300 hectares of woodland in the impoverished rural region, which the government says is one of the best truffle areas in central Europe due to its climate and soil conditions. It was in this 44-hectare (110 acre) oak forest that a colleague earlier this year unearthed a summer truffle weighing 1.28 kg (2.8 lb) - the biggest of its kind yet found in Hungary.

Di Vora grates some truffle on a dish in an Italian restaurant in central Budapest
Fausto Di Vora grates some truffle on a dish in an Italian restaurant in central Budapest August 8, 2014. Given their strong flavour and fragrance, a pungent blend of moist earth and spices, these rugged black fungi, generally the size of a walnut or an apple, are mainly used as a condiment in pasta, seafood or meat dishes, but also in some desserts. Even seasoned chefs, like Di Vora, who cooks at a smart Italian restaurant in central Budapest, have a hard time defining the precise flavour of truffles. "It changes all the time, depending on whether it is a black or a white truffle, but it also varies by season," said Di Vora, who uses about 30-40 kg of truffle a year, some from Hungary.

New growth is seen alongside damage caused by the 2013 Rim Fire in the Stanislaus National Forest in California May 30, 2014. Despite a record ?flush,? or bloom, of the tasty, wild fungi, mushroom hunters are banned from the forest because officials believe that scorched, unstable tree trunks, eroded soil and logging operations after last August?s massive Rim Fire have made the area too dangerous. That means as much as $40 million in a bumper crop of morels ? ironically sparked by the same fire that is blocking hunters ? is rotting in the woods west of Yosemite Park. Photo taken May 30, 2014.

A woman prepares mushrooms and vegetables at her shelter in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, western France, February 17, 2014. Around two hundred people, farmers and inhabitants who refuse to leave, occupy houses or expropriated land in the zoned ZAD (Deferred Development Zone) in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, that is slated for the Grand Ouest Airport (AGO). The residents of the ZAD, 1,600 hectares (3,954 acres), have formed some fifty living groups comprised of self-built homes, villages, farms and buildings that were saved from destruction, which have been renovated and are currently occupied by people who resist expulsion. Residents work in agricultural and horticultural projects, and also have collective spaces for baking bread, a pharmacy, sewing and bicycle repair. A demonstration to protest the construction of the new airport in this zone, some 30kms (19 miles) from Nantes and scheduled for 2017, will be held February 22, 2014 in Nantes.

China's annual consumer inflation slowed more sharply than expected to a seven-month low of 2.5 percent in December, easing market fears of monetary policy tightening although the central bank is tapping the brakes on bank liquidity.

A truffle is seen on a table in Alba north-western Italy
A truffle is seen on a table in Alba, north-western Italy November 11, 2013. Located in the heart of the Langhe - the hilly southern area of Italy's northwestern Piedmont region - Alba is the country's capital of white truffles, a variety of the prized fungus which grows underground. Truffles are found two to eight inches (5-20cm) below the ground near the roots of trees. They give off an odour which lasts for a limited period of time and can be detected with the assistance of well-trained dogs and experienced hunters. Output of white truffles, which are not cultivated and only grow naturally in forests, has fallen in Italy over the past few years, largely because climate change has brought a damaging mix of drought and torrential rains.

Mould covers the beer bottles in the private archive of the family-owned Hofstetten brewery in the Upper Austrian town of Saint Martin August 13, 2013. Hofstetten brewery is offering beer lovers a trip back in time by reviving a 300-year-old recipe it found in the town archives. The brewery recreated the "Neuhauser Herrschafts Pier" from ingredients listed in an invoice for the local Neuhaus castle in 1720, when Austria was one of Europe's big powers. Using small crops of emmer and malting barley grown from ancient seed varieties agricultural historians had preserved, owner Peter Krammer was able to reproduce the mix of barley, wheat and hops that marked the brew made three centuries ago.

A dairy cow looks out from a pen at a farm in Dobanovci, near Belgrade February 20, 2013. Authorities in Serbia ordered an unspecified number of dairies to withdraw their milk from shops pending tests for a toxin released by fungi often found in grains, the agriculture ministry said on Tuesday. The ministry said in a statement that initial tests in Serbia had suggested the possible presence of aflatoxin, a potentially carcinogenic product of the Aspergillus fungi species, "above prescribed levels".

A coffee picker shows coffee cherries affected by a tree-killing fungus known as roya at a plantation in El Crucero, about 20 km (12 miles) south of Managua, January 9, 2013. Central American farmers who produce some of the world's most sought-after coffee beans are grappling with the re-emergence of a merciless old foe: the tree-killing fungus roya spread by the wind. Aggressive outbreaks of the blight have hit Central America's major coffee-producing nations and Mexico, which are home to more than a fifth of the world's arabica coffee production. The pandemic risks decimating yields, threatening hundreds of thousands of livelihoods and export revenues in some of Latin America's poorest countries. Making matters worse, coffee prices have fallen by about half since a mid-2011 peak, leaving farmers to face a double-whammy of shrinking incomes on top of depressed output.
