Abstract:

The study was undertaken with an objective to assess perceived constraints of mushroom grower in mushroom production enterprise. The study was purposively undertaken in flood prone Malda district of West Bengal due to gaining popularity of mushroom production enterprise among rural women and unemployed rural youth who were adopting this venture for employment generation. The rural youth were very much interested in mushroom production enterprise but now they have perceived various constraints in adoption of this enterprise for self-employment. The various perceived constraints were assessed in terms of technical, economical, infrastructural, general and marketing constraints. Unavailability of quality spawn was highest ranked technical constraints. High cost of spawn and poor supply of spawn at appropriate time were highest ranked economical and infrastructural constraints respectively. Poor knowledge about nutritive value of mushroom and lack of local market were highest ranked general and marketing constraints respectively. It is therefore recommended that constraints should be minimized to boost up the enterprises. To do that, policy makers should come up with some suitable policies to minimize these constraints. Further, the extension agencies should take up skill oriented training programmes and awareness programmes for the mushroom growers and rural youth in large scale for their self-employment.
