|Mushroom Society of India (MSI) was established in August 1990 at headquarter NCMRT-Solan (Now Directorate of Mushroom Research) with 10 founder members and its membership has since then crossed 550 life members, 36 annual members and 49 library members through out the world. One of the major objectives of the MSI was to bring out a journal to cater to the needs of the researchers and growers. It has fulfilled its commitment – the first issue of the “Mushroom Research” was in researchers and mushroom growers hands. It has been possible with the help of the members, executive council, editorial staff and especially the contributors to the back volume issue. The society registered under society registration Act 1860 vide No.60/91 dated 21.05.1991 at Solan (HP). The major objectives were :
To bring mushroom researchers, development workers and growers together for dissemination of scientific information.
To bring out a Mushroom Journal.
To organize periodic Symposia.
To promote commercial mushroom cultivation.
