Psu mushroom technology generation and research in ilocos region

Cesar G. Della


Mushroom is one of the banner projects of the university envisioned to enhance the quality and quantity of products per unit of time as well as develop technologies that are low-cost and adaptable to the condition of Ilocos region and the availability of substrate materials for the production of mushroom. It is in this premise that the research and development agenda is formulated to serve as roadmap for the effective and efficient implementation of the project. The study used qualitative method of research focus on the mushroom technology generation and conducted researches. There were thirteen research studies conducted on straw mushroom (Volvariella volvacea) in Sn. Carlos and Sta. Maria Pangasinan, Philiphines from 1999 to 2010. The modality of the package of technologies was proven effective. Technologies on mushroom production are now available and will be continuously improved/enhanced to cater to the needs of the target clienteles. This study recommended to continuously conduct and update technology generation in the production of mushroom.
