Caption : GUWAHATI¸08-03-2009 : (MUSHROOM CULTIVATION A NEW HOPE FOR ASSAM) A member of the Rangdhali Self Help Group inspecting mushrooms at the Rajabahar village in the out skirts of Guwahati on Sunday, March 08, 2009. Fifteen women of the Rangdhali Self Help Group has taken up the mushroom cultivation as their new lively hood and started rearing mushroom. They have received all technical assistance from a local group call Renaissance Economic Development Foundation. There is a very good potential of taking up mushroom cultivation as an alternate source of income, particularly in the rural areas of Assam .The advantages favouring mushroom cultivation in Assam are good climatic condition, abundance of raw materials, easy cultivation, round-the-year production and extensive demand. A farmer earning rupee one as profit margin on sale of a kilogram of straws can earn Rs. 480 on the sale of six kilogram of mushroom produced using the same one kilogram of straw as the raw material. People of Assam are happy to grow straw mushrooms, which are cultivated on a variety of agricultural wastes, especially rice straw. Mushroom Foundation or MDF, a non- governmental organization active in Kamrup and Sonapur Districts of the Assam State, is educating people about the economic significance of mushroom in domestic as well as international market, besides teaching about cultivation methods. In India, where 55 per cent of the households consume mushroom in their daily diet, the northeast region stands first with 60 per cent of the total consumption. PHOTO: RITU_RAJ_KONWAR
