Mushroom Cultivation has a lot of potential in Fiji, says Chinese Ambassador to Fiji Zhang Ping.

“This project has great social economic benefits for farmers in Fiji,” he said.

The project which had been an initiative by the government of China was started in Legalega in Nadi.

Chinese ambassador to Fiji   Zhang Ping said: “There is no locally owned mushroom farm in Fiji and now we are able to grow and cultivate mushroom in the country.”

He said by promoting and training local farmers to cultivate mushrooms at home, farmers can sell them in local markets and generate cash in development in rural households.

“I think agriculture is an area that has potential for bilateral co-operation because here we have very good natural condition suitable for agriculture development,” he said.
