In this communication I will show mushroom growers how to maintain pure culture of Mushroom Culture in the laboratory.
The steps are:
1) Pure culture of mushroom is maintained on malt agar medium in test tubes/petri plates.
2) Sub culture into larger test tubes of 3-4 cm dia on malt agar medium.
3) After a few days growth (say 5-7 days) on the malt agar medium, pour boiled/sterilized wheat grain into the tube and cotton plug.
4) store these tubes inside a refrigerator at 2-4 C for 5-6 months.
5) During this 5-6 months of storage period the grains are impregnated with mushroom fungus to the top.
6) After 6 months sub-culture on freshly prepared MA slants for spawn preparation.
7) No degeneration of the mushroom fungus was recorded by following this type of mushroom culture maintenance / storage.
8) This method is being successfully practiced by spawn makers in India under my advice for more than 20 years now without any problem.
9) No sophisticated machines / equipment is required for this type of culture maintenance.

When cultivating mushroom outdoors, people should pull out surrounding weeds of cultivation field and use 250 times of Trichlorfon solution to spray on soil and field.
2. Prevent adult pests: when conducting indoor cultivation, people should use thin gauze element to nail on windows, doors and air holes to prevent adult pests. People can also trap and kill them by putting DCVP solution in the light.
3. Trap and kill adult pests: mushroom flies and mosquitoes possess phototaxis, people can set black light lamp or daylight lamp and put DDVP solution in the light.
4. Pharmic fumigating: for indoor cultivation of mushroom, in airtight condition, people can use 2 or 3 pieces of Aluminium phosphide in each cubic metre to fumigate and kill indoor pests.
5. Dispose compost: people can use 15ml of Dicofol for each 50kg and add 10kg of water, evenly spray on material, then heap up for 3 days, this method can kill all pests. People can also mix 40%, 500 times of Octyl mercaptan or 2.5%, 1000 times of Dicis, which have good effects on pest-killing.

EU agricultural market continues to incur losses due to food embargoes RF
Economy and Business January 27
According to European Commissioner for Agriculture, to overcome the effects of the embargo should apply dual approach
BRUSSELS, January 26. / Correspondent. Asya Harutyunyan TASS /. EU agricultural market continues to incur losses in connection with the food embargo Russia. This was stated by the European Commissioner for Agriculture Phil Hogan on the basis of the EU Council at the level of Ministers of Agriculture and Fisheries of the community.
"Three agricultural sector of the market continue to suffer as a result of the food embargo RF: fruits and vegetables, dairy products and pork. There are support measures, but they do not always solve the problem," - he said.
According to European Commissioner, to overcome the effects of the embargo should be applied two-pronged approach. "It is both packages and emergency access to new global markets," - said Hogan.
Russia imposed a 7 August 2014 package response to the sanctions the US, Australia, Canada, the European Union and Norway, introduced them in times of crisis in Ukraine. Countermeasures are prohibited for one year on imports to Russia from these countries, fruits, vegetables, dairy and meat products. Under the restriction does not hit some types of finished products made of meat (except sausage) and fish.
The Government of the Russian Federation on August 20 excluded from the list of products concentrates of vegetable and animal protein, sports nutrition, lactose-free milk, dietary supplements and vitamins and minerals. Also lifted the ban on the supply of seed potatoes smolts (fry for aquaculture), onion sets, hybrid corn and sugar peas for sowing.
EC, starting from August 17, contributed 33 million euros to support the market for peaches and nectarines, 125 million euros to help the producers of perishable fruits and vegetables, targeted support to agricultural producers to store oil, powdered milk and cheeses, as well as EUR 30 million for programs to promote the European agricultural products.
In this Sept. 10 has been suspended payments on vegetables and fruits, and on September 24 - Compensation for producers of dairy products and cheeses. One reason - the funds were almost completely used up, despite the fact that only a small number of manufacturers (estimated agricultural associations EU - less than 5%), affected by the Russian embargo, have been able to get them.
However, in December, the European Commission announced that up to June 2015 will provide emergency aid to fruit and vegetable producers who suffered from Russian countermeasures. Support will focus in particular on the withdrawal from the market of fruits and vegetables in certain EU countries, so they do not put pressure on prices throughout the community, said the EC.
It is estimated that the Russian embargo has affected 4.2% of total exports 28 EU countries for a total amount of 5 billion euros.
