Button Mushroom is the most popular mushroom variety grown and consumed the world over. In India, its production earlier was limited to the winter season, but with technology development, these are produced almost throughout the year in small, medium and large farms, adopting different levels of technology. In the last ten years, large numbers of commercials units have been built by the entrepreneurs/ farmers throughout the country for the production of button mushrooms.
However, commercial production of white button mushroom was initiated in the hilly regions of the country (17- 18°C) like Chail (Himachal Pradesh) Kashmir and Ooty (Tamil Nadu).The white button mushroom (Agaricusbisporus) is grown on compost based on various agricultural wastes and animal manure.
White button mushrooms are grown all over the world and account for 35-45 % of the total mushroom production. In India, large units with production capacities between 2000 – 3000 tonnes/annum, have been set up mainly as export oriented units in the southern, western and northern regions. A large number of small units without climatic control equipment exist throughout India and function during the autumn and winter months only. As a whole it is a good project for new entrepreneurs to invest.
