I am excited to announce that we now offer training in mushroom spawn production. Our lab training is a new concept never implemented in Zimbabwe, most of the materials used will be recycled clear bottles used for making cultures and mother spawn.

The mushroom entrepreneur is free to do any of the following after the spawn production course:
a) Buy mother spawn to use to make their own final spawn.
b) Buy mother cultures to make own sub cultures and mother spawn and ultimately final spawn
c) Do all the stages at their premise.

Mushtella will provide the training to growers and non growers, growers who take this up will benefit more as they will be able to reduce their cost of production as spawn “seed” usually takes up about fifty percent of mushroom bag production costs. Spawn production can also be done as a stand alone business where the spawn is sold to mushroom growers.

Mushtella will  supply all the equipment and inputs or trainees will source their own inputs. The training is also available online to enhance our reach to those not in Harare and those in other countries across Africa and beyond. There will be different packages either training or consultancy. By training you come to our site for training and consultancy is where we help you step by step to set up your own mushroom spawn production laboratory. Consultancy will be charged depending on scale, location, and many other factors.

Training will be $90 once off or $150 with visits to assess progress and online guide for a month after lab start. These rates are only valid for March 2017, and due to the nature of the training we can only take not more than 2 students at a time. The training is spread over a month so that we go stage by stage, one day each week. Do not hesitate to contact us for more details.

Mushtella will provide the training to growers and non growers, growers who take this up will benefit more as they will be able to reduce their cost of production as spawn “seed” usually takes up about 50% of mushroom bag production costs. Spawn production can also be done as a stand alone business where the spawn is sold to mushroom growers. Growers will also have opportunity to make spawn of types not supported by existing spawn laboratories.
