Mushroom is a source of power and virility, used in preparations of many palatable continental dishes. It is good source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Mushrooms contain about 85-95% water, 3% protein, 4% carbohydrates, 0.1% fats, 1% minerals (potassium, phosphorus, copper, iron) and vitamins (niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin). Technology of artificial cultivation of edible mushrooms is a value-added and profitable agribusiness-

  • Mushrooms can be grown on agricultural and industrialwastes
  • An efficient biological form of recycling the agricultural residues (straw, bran, leaf litter, etc.) and modifying into humanfood
  • Cultivation is labor intensive, of short duration, land saving and can be welcomed by the less affluentfarmers

The substrate of cut, sterilized and moist wheat straw are packed in polypropylene (0.2 µm) grow bags. Growth conditions are-

  • Stage I (spawn run): 24±1 C°, 85-90% RH,dark
  • Stage II (primordial formation): 18±1 C°, 90-95% RH, lighted,ventilated
  • Stage III (initial flush/harvest): 22± 1 C°, 85-90% RH, lighted,ventilated
  • Stage IV (next flush/harvest): 22± 1 C°, 85-90% RH, lighted,ventilated

The Botany department is involved in setting of a mushroom cultivation unit near the hostel and adjacent to the cow shed. The unit is set with the purpose of growing mushrooms on a large scale utilizing inexpensive materials including agricultural straw. Now the large scale cultivation ofthe oyster mushroom, Pleurotusostreatus, on the substrate wheat straw was initiated in December, 2021.Thepackedpolypropylenebagswithinoculatedsubstratesarestoredonwoodentableracks. Growth conditions are routinely maintained with the monitoring of proper temperature,moisture and ventilation requirements. The initial harvesting of mushrooms was done from the bags. Harvested mushrooms are packaged in small containers and distributed.

Solar LED

Energy source of our SOLAR LED is sunlight, one of the non-conventional sources of the energy and which is going to be one of the dominating sources of energy in near future. The other benefit is that the SOLAR LED and the source both are non-hazardous and non-polluting. Each part of the SOLAR LED can be recycled. And also going with the govt. plan to increases the dependency on solar power. Our product is operated as per ambient light so no manual switching is required. Intensity of light of our product can be programmed as per number of hours of usage.

Prototype are being developed at Hansraj College under an internship (by March 2022)

Testing of these prototypes will be done in natural environment under natural condition and testing result will be analysed (April 2022)

After clearing and rectifying the shortcoming in prototype, final product will be launched (May 2022)

Environmental sustainability

An energy source of our prototype is non-conventional solar energy. Product as our solution is non-hazardous and non-polluting and also reduces the carbon footprint. All the component of our solar LED can be recycled.
