Button Mushroom Production in Uganda

White Button Mushroom Production at MTRC.

MTRC has successfully produced its first button mushrooms from local agricultural wastes as substrates. This was a result of joint effort with PUM Senior experts; Mr. Wim Joosten in 2017 and Mr.Peter Christiaens in 2018 who carried out the trials at MTRC. It is now official that Local Agricultural waste will serve as suitable growing medium for the production of white button mushrooms. Many thanks to AVSISKY and dedicated PUM Senior Experts.
