I have read lot on blogs on different websites, so thats why I thought, may be you guys can help me in this agri business. My self Ajay and I am from punjab but I got my farm house in Haryana. I have heard lot about poly/greenhouse farming and some people already started these projects in Haryana. And as i came to know from people in our area , that they suggested, there are three crops should grow in our area i.e Capsicums, Tomatoes & Cucumber. But now I explain you my situation in following points step by step, then please help me:
1. I am Master in engineering & working in company and don't have any farming experience. so far My dad does farming. But he just does rural farming not like urban farming or advance farming (polyhouse).
2. Now I am thinking about Green/Poly house farming and looking myself as fresh entrepreneur in this business.
3. So far what I collected information that I tell you, if its wrong , please correct me in reply.
In Haryana , there is total 65 % subsidy on total cost of 1 acre's Green/Poly house project. It means 35% , i have to put in from my pocket. And total cost would be 40 Lacs per acre.
Now you guys help me on the following points:
1. whether I should go for this Poly/Green House farming as you know I don't have experience but I am enough educated to understand the system.
2. If I go for this , then which crop I should select?
3. if I go for capsicum then What would be yield per acre? whats market price per kg? whats costs per acre to grow this vegetable like labour cost, handling cost etcs.
4.How & from where i can get buyer for this vegetable (capsicum)? for me , the main concern is buyer. I need to know, how I can market my product without wastage of material & time.
5. I heard about hydroponic system, is this system really help ?? Just let you know, my agriculture land is fertile. this hydroponic system, how it helps in more productivity? and as I heard its expensive, does it justify cost with extra productivity??
6. Last not least, Anybody can help me in this project and if anybody consultant there then how much you guys charge for your services and what kind of services are available from you guys?
And please if you guys got any project report or any analysis report per 1 acre for this vegetable then please forward me that too on my email id email@example.com
