Mushrooming income – An Alternative
In Assam, organic and carbon waste coming from farms helps in mushroom farming and farms with such waste are considered as the ideal land for growing mushrooms.
Farm wastes are nutritious and further make the land fertile. Waste or straw from rice and wheat harvest, banana leaves, cotton straw etc. are used in this process. Mushrooms are further sold in the market, thereby ensuring additional income for farmers and making them self-sufficient.
