I am a first-time farmer starting off with growing roses near Hosur open cultivation. A fellow farmer (a friend’s friend) has helped me identify a land for lease and has promised to help me kick start the process from scratch, which includes preparing the bed, drips, the fertilizers to be used, and then the variety of rose saplings, labor, marketing etc. Since I want this to start off and go smoothly based on which I can learn and get the confidence and take up bigger projects, this farmer’s help is a necessity and very vital to my progress. I need to know what sort of an arrangement would do justice both to him and me. I was thinking of a percentage of the profits when it starts coming in. Should the profits be shared 75%-25% or 90%-10% (the major part to me as the complete investment be it land, saplings, fertilzers etc etc is mine). Please advice.
