Fellow Farmers, After spending the last two years as a weekend farmer (the first year was a full time farmer!) and learning a whole lot about myself, farming , people while making losses and still looking to go ahead- here are my questions which i believe a lot of people may also have -
- How do you ensure income is being generated at the farm on a regular basis -
- In the integrated farming method it is advisable to have multiple crops on your land - does that mean that the drip irrigation plan will need to be changed accordingly every time you rotate crops or change what you plant?
- Horticulture & Floriculture are looking to be the most lucrative of all streams followed by Dairy however you will not be able to generate enough revenue if you are selling unprocessed produce - what are experienced farmers doing which is making them successful in this space.
- Labour is the major issue and there seem to be better options by using mechanization however is there any direction on what the experienced farmers are using machines for and how that is helping them out ?
