Farmers Sounds ~The Mushroom cultivation training~
Good Earth Japan (GEJ) supports the program of Mushroom cultivation training for farmers who live on post landmine field in northwest of the Kingdom of Cambodia in cooperation with Battlambang Provincial Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery (PDAFF).
Mushroom training started in early March. The harvest of mushrooms has come in mid April.
The mushroom harvesting was good result almost the same among the 5 villages, average between 0.8Kg-1Kg/1m2.
We have received some messages from farmers who attended the Mushroom training.
My name Phan Da living in Boengsangke village since year 2000, this is the second time for mushroom training,
I am happy to see the result is good compare to last year some time damage sometime growing,
the problem is the weather control, the second time training more clear understand,
I will continue for mushroom cultivation. Mushroom price $3/Kg.

Not only mushroom also chicken raising is success, since last year chicken 2% is died, compare to last 2-3 year ago almost 100% dead because can not protect the disease.
