    Default Dear sir

    Mushroom venture is gratest venture GOI giving special emphasis to this under NHM by providing subsidy it is answer for the malnutrition which very dangerus as it affecting small kids at early stage. If could let me know yr place i could suggest best suited mushroom for cultivation. There are 1000 sps of mushroom in this word in india u can cultivate some 5 of them under different agro-climetic zone say for e.g.
    1.Butten which is having good keeping quality sold at Rs.80-120 at retail but it requires cold storage facility and it should be industrial scale to book right profit, in northen india u can cultivate open.
    2.Milky mushroom- which can be easily cultivated under temp ranging between 36-38 C comparitivly good keeping qulity some times in Bangalore sells at higher than butten.
    3. oyster mushroom- easy to cultivate in any corner of the contry and also early one but keeping quality is very less minimum of one day. looking to your market capacity and temperature u can plan the type of mushroom.
    further details u may contact.
    1.IIHR, Hesaragatta, Bangalore.
    2.Nataraj S.K.Biotechnology centre, Dept. of Horticulture ,Govt.of Karnataka Bangalore,. monthly trainings are organised here on cultivation and morketing .
