Present investigation was carried out in the Mushroom Production Unit, Department of Plant Protection, Anbil Dharmalingam Agricultural College & Research Institute, Tiruchirappalli from January 2018 to April 2018. Mushroom cultivation can directly improve livelihoods through economic, nutritional and medicinal contributions. But, mushrooms cultivation in a commercial way is underway. However, visualizing mushroom cultivation as a sustainable tool is a new challenge. Keeping this in mind, the students were trained and motivated to grow oyster mushroom. This training has given confidence to the students to take up this as a business in future. During the study, the production and economy analysis of oyster mushroom were observed.
