Grower Umit Sengul set up the first mushroom production facility in the area with the help of government funds through “ Young Grower Project”.
The district of Derinkuyu, a production area in Nevsehir, a city located in central Turkey, is well known for its potato production.
Attempts like this to introduce new products and varieties are welcomed by the city officials and are hoped to set an example for other growers to follow.
Young entrepreneur grower will start growing 10 tons of mushrooms in his facility and looking to expand its production more and more in upcoming years. The grower already started receiving interest from local wholesalers for his products and other growers are expected to enter into this business soon. Mushroom production could potentially create another stream of income in addition to potatoes for the residents in the area.
