Mushroom farmers to get support
The Mushroom industry is facing a myriad of challenges which is hampering the growth of the sector.
The challenges which include poor infrastructure, limited input availability, lack of funds and technical know-how is slowing down the pace of harvesting and processing thereby shifting the attention of farmers into other ventures.
In a bid to improve on the situation, an NGO, ACDI/VOCA in collaboration with Mushroom for well-being foundation is offering free support to mushroom farmers in the country.http://ghanapoliticsonline.com

First to benefit from the initiative is a section of mushroom farmers based in the Brong Ahafo region.
