Abstract

Mushroom is a fungus shaped like an umbrella that grows in decomposing organic matter. Unlike most plants that produce seeds, mushrooms produce spores to continue the reproduction process. In this paper, we go into details of oyster mushroom farming, an in-depth analysis of the cultivation process, and its financial as well as health benefits.

Keywords:
Mushroom, farming, oyster mushroom, fungiculture, floriculture
