Production of edible fungi or mushrooms involves many steps, mainly the following: (a) Raising and maintenance of mushroom culture, (b) Seed or spawn preparation, (c) Substrate preparation, (d) Growing or cropping, and (e) Postharvest handling

While step (a) and (b) are more or less common and similar for most of the mushrooms, it is the substrate preparation, crop raising, and post harvest technology which vary with the type of mushroom. In this article after brief treatment of the step (a) and (b), the cultivation technology of the so-called five leaders mentioned earlier will be briefly described and reviewed. The successive steps of production of mushrooms are depicted in Figure 1.
