I am very much interested in starting farming as an occupation and if at all i am starting, i will be a first generation farmer. that means, i do not have any experience or lineage in farming. so i look forward to having some guidance from you.
I am looking to start with some crop with the least harvest time as well as having some good value. Can you suggest some crops please? what i have in mind is to start banana cultivation as it has only a crop-cycle of only 10months (pls correct me if i am wrong, sir). from my understanding, i think black soil would be best suited for growing bananas. can you pls suggest some high yield varieties that is suitable for growing in kerala or in the border districts of karnataka/tamil nadu? can you please suggest some places in kerala/karnataka/tamil nadu where the soil is best suited to start a banana farm? also, are there any negative points that i should keep in mind before starting a banana farm?
do you think banana farming to be a good idea for a first time farmer? humbly requesting you valued advise & suggestions.
thanking you in advance.
