Tran Thi Kim Khoi with her model of growing mushroom 

Ms. Khoi said: “Cultivating abalone mushroom does not take much space, it is not treated with chemical fertilizers or pesticides. However, growers must follow the proper techniques such as the farm construction, light, temperature and appropriate humidity. Growers must buy mushroom embryos in reliable suppliers to ensure that mushrooms grow well, thick and reach quality. During the growing process, it is necessary to regularly monitor the temperature, especially watering stage. It takes 30 days to harvest mushroom since the mushroom embryos are purchased and hung up. A bag of mushroom embryos produces 200 grams of mushrooms per time and is harvested for 4 months. This model is suitable for families with less productive land. In 2017, she explored and learned techniques for producing mushroom embryos and providing them for local people with the fund supported by the district Social Policy Bank via commune Women's Union”.

Abalone mushrooms are healthy foods because chemicals or pesticides affecting consumer health are not used in the production process. This mushroom is being consumed strongly in restaurants and food stalls. Although the model of growing abalone mushroom newly developed in recent years, it brings stable income for many people./.
