Hello dear mushroom enthusiasts, there have been a lot of requests from you all regarding the training for learning the full process of Cordyceps militaris cultivation. But as you all are aware of the lockdown situation due to COVID-19, it is physically impossible for us to fulfill your requests. So, here we have come up with a solution and we are happy to announce an online training course covering all aspects of Cordyceps cultivation from culture preparation to packing. The layout of the training module can be seen below. We also hope to provide a lab visit and hands on experience of all the processes at our facility in Gwalior (M.P.) hopefully in Oct-Nov 2020 once the traveling and gathering restrictions due to COVID-19 eases out.
