Mushroom Farming Workshop

Training Pakistan conducted a Mushroom Farming workshop at its campus.  The past year has witnessed an increase in demand for mushroom and with continuing progress of CPEC initiatives, demand is likely to increase.

The one-day workshop focused on training individuals to become mushroom farmers.  The initiative was launched with Agri-Education Pakistan.

The workshop covered training to grow both oyster and button mushroom.  Training Pakistan had set up a small demo unit that successfully showed production of mushroom even during the summer months.  The demo unit managed to retain humidity levels of 80% and temperatures below 24 Celsius.

Hygrometer measuring humidity and temperature in the demo unit set up at Training Pakistan’s campus in Lahore.
