King oyster mushroom
Most of the King Oyster Mushroom production applies bagging cultivation. For ease of food processing, big mushrooms are comparatively well received. With the growing income and strengthened consumption sense, we estimate the future sales channel will be gradually directed to retail extension instead of the current business requirement. Bottle cultivation technology with Mushrooms of appropriate size and lower labor cost will call in a trend of market expansion.
