Mushroom Exports Earned $8.8m Last Year

About $8.8 million worth of mushrooms were exported in the last Iranian year (March 2015-16), indicating a 57% increase compared with a year before.

The Persian daily Forsat-e-Emrouz cited the Agriculture Ministry as reporting that close to 123,000 tons of mushrooms were produced in Iran during the period, indicating a more than 4% rise compared with the previous year.

Some 680 mushroom cultivation units are active across the country, which employ nearly 6,500 people.

Iran’s per capita consumption of mushroom stands at 1.2 kilograms, which is below the global average of 2.5-3 kilograms.

Mushrooms can be easily grown without access to vast tracts of land, providing a regular source of income throughout the year. They can be harvested four to five times a year since the crop’s life cycle is 60-70 days.

Small-scale mushroom production units do not entail any significant capital investment.
