Crop Production

The section is engaged in the activities related to compost production, supplementation, agronomic practices, crop management, and casing soil for white button mushroom cultivation . This section also deals with cultivation technologies of oyster and other mushrooms, especially evaluation of different agricultural wastes. Research is also being undertaken to domesticate Morchella species.

Crop Protection

This section is engaged in the management of pests and diseases and development of IPM technology in mushrooms. It is also engaged in the standardization of cultivation technology of specialty mushrooms, which include Calocybe indica, Lentinula edodes, Hericium, Cordyceps and Auricularia spp. Recently this section has also started the work on residue studies.

Crop Improvement
