Mushrooms are an emerging cash crop across Jammu &Kashmir

As a result of the J&K Agriculture Department’s efforts, mushroom production is at its all-time high. Under the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojna (National Agriculture Development Program), mushroom cultivation is a focus area and growers are equipped with quality seeds and trained in scientific cultivation techniques.

In the Shivalik range of the Jammu region, mushrooms (especially Gucchi) provide income security to many inhabitants. With the recent government interventions, forest-dwellers in Jammu Shivaliks are being given formal training and instructions about mushroom collection and processing techniques, market knowledge, and market access, so that their efforts pay them their rightly earned share.
