Techniques for enhancement in quality and shelf-life of harvested button mushroom
 The spraying of 0.2% solution of CaCl2 on mushroom beds starting from pinhead initiation stage upto completion of crop helps in obtaining mushrooms with superior quality (whiteness and texture) and the quality is maintained for much longer period on storage both at ambient and refrigerated conditions.  Similarly washing of mushrooms in solution of 0.02% KMS + 100 ppm EDTA helps in maintaining superior quality of the stored mushroom.  Pakacing of washed mushroom in 100 gauge thick polypropylene bags also helps in retaining the quality for a much longer period than packaging in ordinary polythene bags.
