Abstract:

In the present study, a total 124 participants were judged for their knowledge gain after training on Mushroom Production Technologies. The training programme on Mushroom Production technologies were arranged for rural youth, farmers and farm women of district Barnala, Punjab. Maximum knowledge gain (86.29 %) was observed in Button mushroom compost production technologies followed by 81.45 per cent knowledge gain in learning about the commercial varieties of mushrooms popular in northern India. Whereas, lowest knowledge gain of 57.26 % was observed in oyster mushroom cultivation technologies after the completion of the training programme. Before joining the training programme about 40.32 per cent of participants have knowledge of oyster mushroom production technologies followed by 33.87 per cent of participants with knowledge of suitable timing in seasonal mushroom cultivation. Participants were having lesser previous knowledge of 1.61 per cent of mushroom mycelium and spawn production. The satisfaction of the participants after the training programme indicates the importance of the vocational training programme on Mushroom Production Technologies arranged by Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Barnala.
