Mushroom cultivation in greenhouses at village Edakkara Tehsil Nilambur District Mallapuram in Kerala. The village is now known as Mushroom village as there are over 26 functional greenhouses managed by group of women farmers who are cultivating mushroom under protected cultivation. Based on the success of the project additional 100 greenhouses have already been sanctioned.
Each greenhouse is of 100 sqm for which a special SUNCOOL polyfilm was developed to maintain the required climatic condition in the greenhouse. The farmers are earning currently around Rs. 2 lakh per year from this project. (50 kg of mushroom in 3 months selling at an average price of Rs. 200/- to Rs. 300/-). The initial investment per greenhouse is around Rs. 1.5 Lakh for which 50% assistance is given by Kerala Horticulture Department in form of subsidy. Thus one can now get an annual return of Rs. 2 lacs on an investment of Rs. 75,000 bringing smile on the face of number of farmers.
