DIFFUN, Quirino, May 15 (PIA)-- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), in collaboration with the Quirino State University main campus, recently conducted Mushroom Production Training for the members of its assisted Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Organizations (ARBOs)  to equip them of the latest production technology.



Frelita Bartolome, DAR information officer, said mushroom production  using  rice straw and banana leaves as substrate is seen to be a lucrative alternative enterprise for the farmers of Quirino being a palay and banana producing province.

“With a user- friendly technology, minimal production costs due to abundance of raw materials, minimal space and time requirement, and a ready market for its production, mushroom growing could be an alternative livelihood enterprise for the beneficiaries making use of their extra time before and after cropping season of palay and corn,” Bartolome explained.

The first batch was conducted at San Ramos, Nagtipunan, Quirino, last April 3, 2014, for the Quirino Farmers Multi-Purpose Cooperative and the members of the cooperative have already  adopted mushroom growing in the community making use of banana leaves.

The members of the assisted Irrigators’ Associations of Cajel of Diffun, LAVIERMOS  of Saguday, Villa Delsan and San Marcos  of Cabarroguis, and the San Francisco of Aglipay  were also trained  on May 13, 2014, at Cajel IA Office, here.

During the trainings, Prof. Edwin Lasdacan of QSU demonstrated  to the participants the proper way of planting spawn to rice straw beds for mushroom growing.

Bartolome said   mushroom production with rice straw as medium has been replicated in the other  palay producing municipalities of the province. (ALM/TCB/PIA 2-Quirino)
