Much Profit from the oyster Mushroom Chips

Year 2006 is the year of introduction and partner Mandy Tri Sugiatno Widiastuti with oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus). However, in just three years, they managed to cultivate mushrooms and process into chips that generate millions of dollars of income.

Induction was started when Mandy came into the race in District Wungu village, district of Madiun, East Java. There, the cultivation of oyster mushroom farmers become one of the race participants. After seeing and knowing that mushroom cultivation is easy and cheap, Mandy had her driven to the cultivation

"Only the first try," said Mandy. Tri background is a graduate of the Free University majoring engine, Madiun. Mandy graduated from the Free University economics department, Malang. However, their ignorance about the cultivation of mushrooms is not an impediment.

Log Dibelilah 200 bags (mushroom seed mix, sawdust, bran kawur lime, and fertilizer in plastic) for Rp 300,000. Bag log then arranged in kumbung (mushroom houses) berdindingkan woven bamboo covering 42 square meters, in addition to his home in RT 29 RW 3 JATIROGO, Kresek, Wungu District, Madison County.

Only by flushing clean water every day, white mushrooms grew in every bag log. Within a month, mushrooms can be harvested. Fungus was kept up until four to five months later, before then bag a new log should be replaced.

White mushrooms harvested about five pounds per day and then sold to neighbors Rp 8,000 per kilogram. Unexpectedly, they are interested in buying in order to be used to make vegetable.

The number of enthusiasts is what pushed Mandy and increasing the number of bags Tri log until the end of 2007 of 1,000 bags kumbung cultivated in the log. The result, every day they harvest up to 30 pounds of white mushrooms.

However, the number of harvested white mushrooms that just confuses Mandy and Tri. The reason, of 30 kilograms of each day, only about 5 to 10 pounds that can be sold. The rest, piling up in warehouses, no buyers.

That's where Tri and thought processes oyster mushrooms into chips, but not easily achieved. Experiments made oyster mushroom chips did not visit successful. "There was a soggy chips, there are not taste good," said Tri.

Cook until the trial to-10, Tri and Mandy find the right dose. Fried oyster mushrooms with the flour was mixed with savory and tasty.

By holding "secret recipe" that, both cooked about five pounds of mushrooms to be made chips. There are two types of chips are sold, good-quality chips sold at Rp 70,000 per kilogram. Chips, which number two sold Rp 1250 per small package.

Oyster mushroom chips tested initially sold to neighbors, shops, and restaurants around. Initially there was resistance because as far as they know can make a poisoned mushrooms. However, after a try and secure chips, they buy it and become regular customers.

Request flow

The spread from mouth to mouth to make chips more known. Beginning in 2009, demand increased, but limited production of oyster mushrooms.

"Demand is coming from outside Madison, such as Banjarmasin, Samarinda, Riau, and Madura. There are exporters of Lumajang offering my product exports. Many Indonesian migrant workers who took my chips to be sold abroad, "said Tri.

Tri was trying to work with 11 farmers in the region Dungus mushrooms and Kresek, Madison. Mushroom farmers purchased Rp 8,500 per kilogram plus own mushroom cultivation, Tri and Mandy got half a hundred pounds mushrooms per day. Mushrooms cooked in a frying pan to produce six half-hundred pounds of chips per day.

Chip sales turnover of about Rp 3 million per day. Net income of about 10-20 per cent of turnover, between Rp 300,000 to Rp 600,000. In fact, three years ago, earnings from selling the white oyster mushroom is only Rp 40,000 per day.

It turned out that the amount of production that was not enough to meet demand, especially as Lebaran approached. "Demand is up 100 percent. It took a hundred pounds of white oyster mushrooms per day to meet demand. Only half of the full demand, "said Tri.

"Budidayanya easy, cheap, and great market potential, but unfortunately not many people know this so that his hesitation cultivation," he added.

Therefore, each time a citizen or a student comes to learn oyster mushroom cultivation, he gave lessons for free. Let more and more people want to plant oyster mushrooms. If the oyster mushroom supply was limited, the obsession to make the franchise was hampered production chips.

He must dwell alone with his business because of the attention of Madison County Government, particularly Department of Agriculture on the development of mushroom cultivation is minimal. Actually, cultivation could increase farmers' welfare.

"Please note the new government came when a show. We were contested by the agencies that claim to us as they built the industry, "Tri said with a smile
