The United States has extended the anti-dumping duty on Indian preserved mushrooms for another five years.
The US International Trade Commission has extended the restrictive duty on this item, and according to reports, this is likely to impact domestic exporters as the US is a major export destination for India.
In 2014-15, India exported mushrooms worth 16.08 million dollars and during April-May this fiscal the exports aggregated at 1.63 million dollars.
Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir are the major states that produce this item.
Indian mushrooms are exported to the U.S., UAE, Russia and Israel.
