This article was originally published in Foodnews

INDIA has huge potential for mushroom cultivation, according to the country's ministry of agriculture. With a suitable climate, abundant raw material and manpower, different varieties of mushroom can be grown in several regions and throughout the year. Currently, the country produces 100 000 tonnes of mushrooms a year. Two government-sponsored schemes are being implemented in the country to promote horticulture production: the National Horticulture Mission and Horticulture Technology Mission for North Eastern and Himalayan States. These aim to increase production and productivity of horticultural produce, including mushrooms, to serve both domestic and export markets.
