CHANDIGARH: A three-day online webinar on ‘Mushroom Production, Processing, and Marketing' was inaugurated at Maharana Pratap Horticulture University, Karnal by the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Samar Singh.

In this webinar organized under the National Agricultural Higher Education Project, Professor Samar Singh said that in the diversification of horticulture, mushroom is a business that can be started with nominal funds and if successful, the mushroom production can be augmented at any stage. He said that in our country, the consumption of mushroom is only 100 grams per person, whereas, in the Netherlands and China, it is used widely. He informed that fresh variety of mushrooms have arrived at the University’s Regional Centre. The price of the latest variety of mushrooms is high in the market, and their production can help farmers earn a good income. Professor Samar Singh said that the farmers should also be informed about economic analysis and marketing of mushrooms. Also, the marketing of mushrooms can be enhanced with the intervention of government. He said that there is a need to set up mushroom processing plants as when the supply of mushrooms in the market exceeds the demand the producer is unable to store it.
