The farm aims to offer pedigree mushroom species to the growers at a fair price, boost the production and promote the interest of the growers.

PyinOoLwin Mushroom Research and Technology Development Farm under the Mandalay Region Agriculture Department has been delivering the mushroom species to facilitate the access of the small-scale growers in the region.
There are five mushroom research farms prioritizing the fungi culture and technology dissemination.
PyinOoLwin farm primarily cultivates button mushroom, black oyster mushroom, Shittake mushroom and monkey head mushroom in a cold climate. King oyster mushroom and Enokitake are also cultivated on a trial basis. For farms in the tropical region, paddy straw, milky mushroom and Ganoderma lucidum are systematically farmed and distributed.
Furthermore, the research farm is also conducting courses regarding fungi culture in each region across the country, said Daw Soe Soe Nwe, in charge of PyinOoLwin farm.
“We distribute the mushroom species to fulfil the needs of the growers. It also contributes to rural development. The mushroom can be farmed with the use of agricultural waste, industrial waste and forestry waste. It can be regarded as agro-forestry and agro-industrial production. The research farm shares the technology of mushroom cultivation through waste. The number of mushroom farmers has increased. This cultivation also allows the growers to generate extra income,” she elaborated.
This research farm is responsible for those growers in the upper Myanmar region. Moreover, the growers from other regions and states also buy them at the farm. The farm aims to offer pedigree mushroom species to the growers at a fair price, boost the production and promote the interest of the growers. – Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-Printing House)/GNLM
