    The Project targets at providing technical training to women, self help groups, landless farmers, rural youth , disabled , suicide survivors. As we are focusing on empowering women and youth this project plays a vital role Mushroom cultivation can help reduce vulnerability to poverty and strengthens livelihoods through the generation of a fast yielding and nutritious source of food and a reliable source of income. Since it does not require access to land, mushroom cultivation is viable . Small-scale growing does not include any significant capital investment: mushroom substrate can be prepared from any clean agricultural waste material, and mushrooms can be produced in temporary clean shelters. They can be cultivated on a part-time basis, and require little maintenance. Indirectly, mushroom cultivation also provides opportunities for improving the sustainability of small farming systems through the recycling of organic matter, which can be used as a growing substrate, and then returned to the land as fertilizer. Through the provision of income and improved nutrition, successful cultivation and trade in mushrooms can strengthen livelihood assets.

    SBH Mushroom centre through Indira Gandhi Agricultural university –DMRC has given training and assistance (spawn distribution) to 35 villagers in Paddy, Oyster and Milky mushroom as of now and production crossed 135 kgs in 4 months.
