Trần Thanh Đức, Nguyễn Phi Nam, Trương Thị Diệu Hạnh

Tóm tắt


This research is carried out in Huong Phong commune, lagoon area in Thua Thien Hue province with three main objectives: (1) improve household’s income and minimize the environment pollution, (2) determine suitable mushroom seedlings for the locality and (3) find the potentials to develop mushroom production activity in the lagoon area. Results showed that income from mushroom production was contributing 20-60% of total family income. Some households have high income from mushroom production such as Mr. Dau (33 million VND), Mr. Nam (19 million VND) and Mr. Kinh (16 million VND). The main mushroom season begins from April to September every year. The amount of mushroom can be consumed easily in local markets. The average of annual price is 55.000 VND per kilogram. In comparison with rice cultivation, mushroom production only requires  a small portion of land and costs less for the investment yet brings higher income. After harvesting mushroom, 90% of participating households use wasted rice straws as fertilizer for vegetables in their garden. The results of this experiment show that mushroom seedling originated from Ho Chi Minh city contributes higher productivity than those from Hue city. Through the survey’s results related to mushroom cultivation from six communes bordering with Huong Phong Commune, currently two households only in one commune (Huong Vinh) out of six cultivate mushroom. In the remaining five communes (Phu Mau, Phu Thanh, Quang Thanh, Hai Duong and Thuan An) do not have any households doing this activity. Therefore, cultivating mushroom in household scales has the potentials and can be developed in the communes located in the lagoon area.
