Information profile @ a Glance
  • Mushroom is an exotic source of vegetarian food. Most of its varieties are edible and form a tasty and nutritious diet
  • There is a growing market for
    mushrooms because of their subtle flavour, nice aroma, special taste and food value
  • Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus species) can be grown on variety of crop refuses, saw dust, bagasse , sludge etc
  • Oyster mushroom can grow at moderate temperature ranging from 20 to 300 C and humidity 55-70% for a period of 6 to 8 months in a year. It can also be cultivated in summer months by providing the extra humidity required for its growth. In hilly areas above 900m. (m.s.l.), the best growing season is during March/April to September/October and in the lower regions from September/October to March/April.
  • Oyster mushrooms are the third largest cultivated mushroom. China, the world leader in Oyster production, contributes nearly 85% of the total world production of about a million tonnes.
  • The other countries producing oyster mushrooms include Korea, Japan, Italy, Taiwan, Thailand and Phillipines.
  • The present production of this crop in India is only around 1500 tonnes due to low domestic demand. Another inhibiting factor is that export demand orders are large and can be met only if a linkage is developed between producer, cooperatives and exporters.
