“We succeed in planting red mushrooms.” Xu Xingwei, a villager from Haishu district, has recently released a good news in the WeChat Circle of Friends.

The fresh red mushrooms look like “red umbrella” in the farm. “The red mushrooms planted last year has entered the harvesting period though the production has not reached large-size. However, the farmers who purchased red mushrooms give good feed-backs.”, said Xu Xingwei.

According to the data, the scientific name of red mushroom is Stropharia rugosoannulata, one of the top ten mushroom species on the

international mushroom trading market. It has emerged at home in recent years. Last year, some villagers from Zhangxi village visited Lishui along with the Forestry Bureau of Ningbo, and they were excited to find that planting Stropharia rugosoannulata is a good way of getting rich. “Ordinary mushrooms must be planted in greenhouses, but it can be planted outdoors.” Located on Siming Mountain, Zhangxi village has thousands of bamboo and cherry blossom forests. Obviously, the Stropharia rugosoannulata planted under the forests will increase the income of villagers.

Lu Genshui, head of the Zhangxi Village Flower and Wood Cooperative, said that later they will invite professionals to train villagers, expand the planting area and set up a production base for edible fungi.
