(BGO) –The Mushroom Research and Development Center (under the Agriculture Genetics Institute) is conducting the provincial level Technology Science Project of “Applying the technology science to build the model of green ironwood mushrooms production and development in Son Dong district, Bac Giang province”.
The project focuses on constructing a model to produce the green ironwood mushrooms with the scale of 50,000 baskets (equivalent to 75 tonnes of materials), including 25,000 baskets grown under the sheds of Son Dong Cooperative for producing and consuming edible and herbal mushrooms and 25,000 others developed under the canopy of natural forest in Khe Ro.
It strives to produce at least 22 kilograms of dried mushrooms per each ton of fresh material on average. Also, the project realizes the model to make various products from the green ironwood mushrooms such as teabag, dissolve tea, green ironwood mushroom infused in traditional wine while completing the technical procedures to grow the mushroom and produce its sub-products so as to match with the local conditions.
The project is scheduled from now on till 2022 with a total cost of over 2.1 billion VND (over 90,500 USD) in which nearly 1,5 billion VND is mobilized from the provincial budget for technology and science task and the remaining is contributed by the locals.
