Straw mushrooms in the market.

According to the information asked by the Global New Light of Myanmar, the straw mushroom is the best seller in the Yangon mushroom market, and growing these mushrooms on one’s own capacity would be profitable and convenient.
Among the many types of mushrooms consumed in Myanmar, straw mushroom is the most consumed locally.
“The mushroom that is selling well now is the silver snow mushroom. The straw mushroom grasps the largest market share.
“The consumption of the straw mushroom is much higher. The silver snow mushroom is less popular. The price is quite different. The price of the straw mushroom is better. The consumption is also different. Yangon has the largest domestic consumption market.
“Mandalay is the second largest. The Yangon mushroom market is better than the Mandalay mushroom market. The price is different,” said Ko Aung Win from Myananda Mushroom Cultivation in Taikkyi Township.
In addition, on a small or large scale, it can be cost-effective and convenient to grow the straw mushroom.
“Mushrooms make more than 50 per cent profit. Lately, however, there have been difficulties with labour. Without adding labour costs, its profit is more than half of the capital.
“Whether it’s on a small scale or commercial scale, it’s cost-effective because it’s produced in a short time. If it’s more than ten days, the straw mushroom can be collected and eaten,” he explained.
Paddy farmers often grow mushrooms with the straw obtained from the monsoon rice harvest until water lifting time for summer paddy. The straw mushroom, one of Myanmar’s favourite foods, is easy to grow and sells well in the market.
With emerging mushrooms cultivation, the production rate is high in the cold season and slightly lower in the summer and rainy seasons. — Thit Taw/ZN/ED
