Mushroom cultivation is a technical process. In the vegetable category, the mushroom is ranked with the heterotrophic organisms. In contrast to green plants, the mushroom is not capable of the photosynthesis process. In mushroom cultivation, waste products, which include horse manure, chicken manure, straw, gypsum, and wastewater, are used to cultivate high-quality mushrooms. Ammonia is removed with the help of ammonia washer from the process air. Ammonia from the air is also used as a source of nitrogen in composting. Fungus, such as mycelium, uses the compost as a source of energy for its combustion, in which energy is released that is used for mushroom growth.

The mushroom cultivation market has witnessed significant growth owing to factors such as multiple health benefits of mushrooms and increasing per capita mushroom consumption. Cost-effective production and rising demand for vegan and natural food in the diet factors help boost the growth of the mushroom cultivation market. Increasing health-conscious population across the globe further propels the demand for mushroom cultivation globally.

Mushroom cultivation is increasingly becoming popular because it not only meets the dietry requirements but also adds to the income, especially of growers with insufficient land. It is considered to be a very rewarding and fascinating hobby for the retired persons as well as house-wives who can grow mushrooms in small boxes or other containers while attending to household chores. Today, mushroom cultivation faces less difficulties provided the grower will follow simple rules of growing.

Cost-effective production and rising demand for vegan and natural food in the diet factors help boost the growth of the mushroom cultivation market.

However, fluctuation in the production of mushroom is projected to hamper the overall growth of the mushroom cultivation market.

Growing Mushrooms = Creating Fertile Soils

Saprophytic and parasitic fungi help create the organic components of topsoil, in alliance with myriad numbers of bacteria, insects, and other organisms. An orchestra of primary, secondary, and tertiary saprophytic fungi render wood into biodynamic soil components. These soils benefit plants that in turn use photosynthesis to manufacture their own foods.

In order to promote mushroom cultivation, agricultural universities and other training institutions conduct training programs throughout the year to farmers on subjects such as mushroom cultivation method, mushroom seed production technology, master trainer training, mushroom production, and processing, etc. Women are being encouraged more for mushroom cultivation. Under this, the state government is also giving a 50 percent subsidy to the farmers of the state for the cost of mushroom cultivation.
