Mushroom Training Centers in India

Today, let us take a class of Mushroom Training Centers in India.

Introduction:

Mushroom farming is a biotechnological intervention of various lignocellulosic agro-wastes into proteins. The commercial mushroom cultivation is an appropriate agribusiness, suiting the agro-climatic conditions of Jammu and Kashmir State. Its cultivation involves low-cost eco-friendly technology wherein locally available farm wastes are utilized as raw material. The temperate climate conditions prevailing in Kashmir valley are quite conducive for mushroom cultivation almost throughout the year. The added advantage is that the venture is least dependent on electricity. Being a labor-intensive indoor activity, mushroom cultivation generates enough employment for unemployed youth and provides support to womenfolk and other weaker section of the society.

Mushrooms are well-suited to supplement diets which lack proteins and in since they are rightly called “vegetable meat“. Carbohydrate and fat contents of edible mushrooms are quite low. Owing to these attributes, these serve as a low-calorie diet recommended to heart patients.

In advanced countries like USA, Japan and China many medicines (mushroom nutriceuticals) are prepared from mushrooms in the form of tablets, capsules, and extracts which fetch revenue worth billions of dollars. This second potential use of mushroom industry is expected to become a dominant segment as the trend to use mushrooms for medicinal use is on the rise with wider consumer satisfaction and acceptability. These two segments of the mushroom industry will not compete but will complement each other.

About 2,000 species of macrofungi are reported to be prime edible. mushrooms, but only about 80 species are grown experimentally, 40 cultivated economically, around 20 cultivated commercially and only 5 produced on an industrial scale. Among the commercially cultivated mushrooms, white button mushroom (Agaricusbisporus) is extensively cultivated throughout the world and contributes more than 40% of the total of 4.0 million metric tonnes of mushrooms produced worldwide.

Mushroom Farming in India:

Mushrooms are sold either in fresh form or canned/freeze-dried form. Fresh mushroom is packed in low-density polyethylene bags and sold in open market. Their shelf life is barely 2 days. Cannel and freeze-dried mushrooms can remain even for one year but freeze drying is costly technology.

India is not a major producer of any of the mushroom varieties, it produces all varieties of edible and medicinal mushrooms. India is a rich source of technical and non-technical manpower that helps farming activities. For Mushroom cultivation, you can use agricultural residues, which are available in huge quantities in every corner of the country. Black carbon emission from biomass burning is the second largest contributor to the current global warming. At present, the areas with the Rice-Wheat cropping system of India is facing a tough challenge to handle the mounting crop residues. Mushroom cultivation can effectively utilize these agro-residues to produce protein-rich food and plays a crucial role in the management of these agro-residues. The supply and demand gap in the world trade of mushrooms and the shrinkage of production in western countries due to high labor costs would result in better market prices for Indian mushroom producers. With a domestic population of more than 1.3 billion, India itself is a large market for mushrooms. The development of rapid infrastructure facilities and well-organized distribution network provides greater scope for the marketing of perishable products in order to meet domestic consumer demands. To be successful in both domestic and export market it is essential to produce quality fresh mushrooms and mushroom fortified value-added products at competitive rates without any agrochemical residues. Efforts should also be made to exploit the commercial utilization of mushroom substrate left after cultivation for preparation of organic manure, vermicompost, briquettes, etc. One final reason for optimism concerning India’s potential as a major mushroom producer is its strategic geographical location, making it more convenient to export mushrooms to the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and European countries.
