Mushrooms will now be ready in crates instead of polythene bags. With this, where the hassle of changing the polythene bag will end, there will be no cost on the bag. Successful research of growing mushrooms in crates has been done by the experts of the Directorate of Mushrooms. This was disclosed by the agricultural scientists at the National Mushroom Fair organized in the Directorate of Mushrooms on Saturday. The Directorate has developed Button and Paddy Straw varieties of mushrooms in the crates. Mushroom growers from all over the country were informed about this by an exhibition organized at the National Mushroom Fair. At present most of the mushroom varieties are being prepared in polythene bags.
A bag gets spoiled after one harvest. On the other hand the crate can be used repeatedly to grow crops. It will also be easier to keep the crate on the rack. Apart from this, it is also being added under the ongoing polythene free campaign in the country. The harvest of mushrooms prepared in polythene bags and crates will be the same. Mushrooms prepared in the crate can also be easily shifted here and there. Now experts will experiment with cultivating many other mushroom varieties in crates. The producers will also be informed about this technology. Director of Mushroom Directorate Dr. VP Sharma informed that Button and Paddy Straw Mushrooms have been prepared in the crate. Will be used on other varieties as well.
