MycoFert® (ढुसीमल) that has been developed under Mushroom Technology Research & Development program of this Unit has significantly progressed for commercialization. Before commercialization and registration of the product in the department of Industry its efficacy in Promoting Plant Growth under Nursery Condition was tested. Based on preliminary result the product greatly enhanced the growth of seedlings under Nursery Condition as well which is distinguishable in nursery with naked eyes also. Other parameters for infectivity and efficacy are being analyzed. Simultaneously, during the exploration of mushroom diversity and phylogenetic study of Scleroderma mushroom, a new species of Scleroderma (Scleroderma nastii sp. nov.) from Phulchoki hill was discovered.
