(BGO) - The provincial Department
of Science and Technology (DOST) has taken over the project “Applying advanced
science and technology in edible and medicinal mushroom production to enhance productivity and quality while
developing trade brand for mushrooms in Bac Giang province” chaired by the
Center for Mushroom Research and Development (Agricultural Genetics Institute).
After 2 years, the project has established the liquid fungus culturing model with capacity of 80 to 100 litres per batch at a annual scale of 2,000 litres of breeds while the quality of fungus seedlings increases with the low infection rate of below 5 percent.
Tien Tien Cooperative in Lang Giang invests in producing commodity mushroom in refrigerating house.
The culturing model of commercial mushrooms (tricholoma mushroom and wood ear fungus) uses 80 tonnes of materials while ironwood production uses 100 tonnes of materials.
This projects applied the breeding method in liquid culture. This is a new method with many outstanding advantages reducing breeding period by 10 to 15 days and the coefficient of inbreeding increases by 7 to 10 times while minimising the infection rate.
The breeding age is equal with stable quality. The productivity grows by from 5 to 10 percent compared to the traditional breeding method while the production cost is low. Especially, this type of culturing method will bear a large amount of mycelia biomass to produce grade-1 and grade-2 seedlings and commercial seedlings as well.
Bac Giang encourages mushroom growing linkage chain

Some people were so lucky that they could earn millions VND per day.
Bac Giang invests nearly 5 billion VND in mushroom production
(BGO) – The Chairman of the Bac Giang People’s Committee has recently approved nearly 5 billion VND in financial assistance for a project on applying science and technology in the production of edible and medicinal mushrooms to boost productivity, quality and develop the local mushroom brand.
