“On the first day of the training, Engr. Arthur Faeldon of DAR,  Dr. Butch Busania of the  DA – Quirino Experiment  Station and DTI Provincial Caretaker Lucia P. Guerrero discussed  their programs and prospects of mushroom as an Industry,” Mauyao said

A hands-on training on mushroom processing was conducted on the second day where  the process of making mushroom patties and siomai (dumplings) was introduced. The trainees were able to  make processed mushrooms and produce their own outputs after observing and participating in the demonstration.

The participants were also taught on preparing mushroom seedling,  proper packing of seedling using the  laboratory apparatuses provided by the KOICA  or the Korean International Cooperative Agency and  Quirino Experiment Station Laboratory.

Furthermore, a hands- on demonstration and preparation of mushroom seedling (Volvarella) using  raw materials such as rice hay, shredded wood chops and molasses was conducted.

Their outputs were  later given to them as their models in growing their own cultured mushroom.(ALM/TCB/PIA-2 Quirino)
