My name is Abhilasha Agrey and I am based in Mumbai. I own a half acre land in Nashik, which I had bought with the idea to do some farming. I am currently working in Mumbai and keen to take up farming as my full time opportunity. I am keen to take up organic farming/marigold cultivation/exotic flower cultivation in this half acre of land
I will appreciate if anybody can guide me on the following:
- Do you need any formal education to begin farming.
- Can the above farming options be implemented in half an acre of land.
- Does the goverment provide any help in terms of loans and subsidies for first time farmers.
We had grown soyabean on the land a couple of years ago but that was only to check the quality of the soil. Currently, the land is barren. My husband and I very keen to make the land useful and productive.
Looking for guidance, help and support in this regards.
