Mushroom Seed Nepal and Research Center

Mushroom Seed Nepal and Research Center has been playing a leading role in the research and advancement of the production of mushroom spawns (seeds) and mushroom cultivation in Nepal. It has been producing and distributing spawns of different varieties of mushrooms such as Oyster, Shiitake, and Button throughout Nepal, after being regularly tested on farms.

This organization has been producing spawns by importing pure cultures from other countries and also cultivating wild mushrooms after collecting them from the forest and developing their pure culture. Additionally, this institution is the first in Nepal to cultivate Reishi mushrooms commercially. It has been offering various products made from mushrooms, namely MSN Reishi mushroom powder and Oyster mushroom pickles.

It also sells different dried mushrooms like Oyster, Shiitake, Reishi, and Button. It has been conducting various researches to improve the quality of mushroom spawn, cultivation and preservation of mushrooms in Nepal. It is also jointly carrying out research activities in collaboration with the Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) in order to advance the research regarding mushrooms in Nepal.

History

In 2054, Mr. Akash Bade, director of the Mushroom Seed Nepal and Research Center, started growing mushrooms by purchasing spawn in saline bottles and using a common stove at home.

He produced and utilized mushroom spawn in his own farm after receiving training on mushroom spawn production from mushroom expert Dr. Keshari Laxmi Manandhar in 2068.

Words from the director - Akash Bade

Director Akash Bade

I founded Mushroom Seed Nepal and Research Center to make native mushrooms suitable for production. We were testing the mushrooms produced in Nepal to make them suitable for cultivation. We have been successful in doing so. With this organization, I want to promote agriculture and mushroom farming in the context of Nepal.
