Summary of Achievements objective wise for the year 2014-15 Objective
1: To collect and conserve mushroom biodiversity
Action 1: Survey of unexplored areas for mushroom/germplasm collection Success Indicator : Wild mushroom collected/ identified/cultured  5 mushroom spp. collected.  145 cultures have been collected from Tripura, Meghalaya and Himachal Pradesh  15 mushrooms were collected from Meghalaya and Himachal Pradesh.
Objective 2: Management and utilization of mushroom genetic resources for improved quality and higher productivity
Action 2: Understanding biology, breeding and selection in edible mushrooms for higher yield and improved quality Success Indicator 2: Isolates/hybrids of mushroom spp. developed and evaluated, biology of mushroom spp. studied  Two hybrids of oyster mushroom developed.  Two single spore isolates of V.volvacea have been evaluated.  Two hybrids developed in A.bisporus.  Five non-bruising hybrids are under commercial scale trial.  One single spore isolates of V.volvacea have been evaluated.  Button mushroom-1 : One new hybrids developed and evaluated.  Volvariella volvacea-1: One high yielding hybrids was developed and evaluated.  Five hybrids and two single spore selection of white button mushroom have been tested on long method compost.  one single spore isolate and one hybrid of V.volvacea was developed & evaluated.
Objective 3: To develop mushroom production technologies by utilizing agro-wastes
Action 3: Development of production technologies, farm implements, software, protocols Success Indicator 3 : Improved production technologies, farm implements, software, protocols identified/developed  Stropharia spp. cultivation technology developed.  Production technology of white strain of V.volvacea developed.  Different combination of paddy straw and cotton (ginning mill waste) were tried out of which 1:1, w/w combination gave highest yield of V.volvacea in 12 kg compost beds.  Treatment of paddy straw bundles with vermicompost extract at bundle dipping stage enhanced the fruit body yield.  Optimum watering regime for A.bisporus was standardized.  Compost making by using button mushroom spent compost was standardized.
Objective 4: To develop protocol for pest management using biological/IPM technologies
Action 4: Development of efficient technologies for pest and disease control in different mushrooms Success Indicator 4 : Technologies developed for control of pest and disease  Biological control of wet bubble disease through Bacillus sp. and Alcaligene sp. achieved. Commercial formulation developed.
Objective 5: PHT and value addition for enhanced shelf life and round the year availability of mushroom/ mushroom products
Action 5: Development of technologies for packaging, storage and value added products Success Indicator 5 : Improved technologies, packaging, food products developed  Mushroom fortified products developed.
Objective 6: Recycling of spent mushroom substrates for beneficial uses and reducing environmental pollution
Action 6: Recycling and management of SMS Success Indicator 6 : Technologies and models developed for spent mushroom substrate management  One technology for use of button mushroom SMS for button mushroom compost making was developed.
Objective 7: Human resource development for capacity building
Action 7: To train the manpower for capacity building Success Indicator 7 : Trainings on mushroom cultivation technology conducted  One training programme organized for entrepreneurs w.e.f April 23rd to 2nd May.  One training programme organized for farmers w.e.f 21-27 May, 2014.  One training programme organized for farmers w.e.f 24-30 September, 2014.  4 days Mushroom Cultivation Technology training from 27-30 Oct., 2014 was organized for farmers from Spiti under TSP.  Five days training programme for Agriculture Extension Personnel of Directorate of Agriculture and Food Production, Govt. of Odisha was conducted from 16-20 December, 2014.
Objective 8: Transfer of technology for popularization of mushroom
Action 8: To conduct melas and participation in exhibition for awareness generation Success Indicator 8 : Mushroom mela/exhibitions organized / attended  Organised National Mushroom Mela on 10th September, 2014 which was attended by 850 farmers.  Participated in Kisan Mela organized by CPRI Shimla at CPRS Patna from 19-21 February, 2015.
