Mushroom production eyed in Mambajao

MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, April 28 (PIA) — Local agriculturists and farmers alike, recently undergone a 3-day mushroom culture production training to provide appropriate technology and be able to counter the demand in the local market soon.

The activity was initiated by the local government unit of Mambajao in hope to provide additional agri-livelihood that will augment the income of the farmers.

Agriculturist Peter Eñola said mushroom is ideal because it can be grown commercially or in small-scale using cheap materials and agricultural waste.

“Mushroom is one of the most delicate plant to grow, and securing spawns here in the island is a challenge that we are also facing, that is why part of the training was also teaching participants how to propagate the mushrooms,” Eñola added.

Mushroom culture in the province is still on its early phase, some farmers have successfully produced, but still small scale, and this technology transfer is hoped to perk up the industry. (JCV/PIA -10)
