There are potential business opportunities from cultivating mushrooms. “In China, more than 20 million people engage in the cultivation process and generate more than $20 billion per annum. As far as Nigeria is concerned, the country has a favorable environment and clement weather for their easy cultivation. One estimate says that about one million people in the country work to generate over $3 billion per year from the process.”
