MUSHROOM CULTIVATION

Introduction
 Mushroom is a nutritious vegetarian delicacy and has many verities. It is easily digestible as well. Most of them are edible. It contains many vitamins and minerals but very low on sugar and fat. It can be grown in a temperature between 200-300 C and required relative humidity is 55to75%. Market for mushrooms is growing in many developing countries rapidly because of their nice aroma, subtle flavor, nutritious values and special taste. Mushrooms have very short life after harvesting and hence they are sold in fresh form. Their shelf life can be enhanced by processing them. Processed mushrooms are packed in special quality polythene bags or canned. Their huge marketing potential necessitates the requirement of skilled personnel and hence this programme .

    Techniques taught during the course

  • Instrumentation handling, such as Inoculation chamber, hot air oven, Incubator, colony counter, autoclave, laminar flow   etc.,                                                                   
  • Preparationf differentmedia, and Sterilization methods                                                                                         
  • Different inoculation method                                                                           
  • Spawn production                                                                                            
  • Tissue culture
  • Sorghum seed production
  • Mushroom in the wild and on markets.
