Oil Palm Mushroom for Empty Bird House

How about using empty oil palm fruit bunch materials as alternative substrates for the cultivation of Pleurotus pulmonarius inside ground floor of bird house? This may be a good solution to utilize empty bird house. The micro-climate inside is suitable for mushroom cultivation.

Although China has officially lifted its ban on bird's nest imports from Malaysia, after a two-year freeze, the price of EBN still very low.

Agricultural and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the approval letter from China's General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine was received on Dec 25.

He said Malaysia was the only country given the approval to export bird's nest to China.

He said, so far, eight companies have been given the approval to export the product.

"There are 13 more companies still waiting for approval," he told reporters here Thursday.

It was reported in June that China had granted a "conditional pass" for nine companies to commence export of the delicacy to the republic.
