This is the experience going to share with you guys about Petbharo Hydroponic (petbharoproject.co.in/), finally is not worth.
i am not against them, i am not at all enemy to them, this is my view about the experience with them.
as Like everybody, i am also too interested about hydroponic farming and its implementation, So that, i have visited many pilot farms in bangalore, pune, Mumbai and lot of information gathered in internet also, still having the enthusiasm to know about more into deep.
for that i paid (1k for training)+3k(Beginner hydroponic kit) to Sangeetha Bojappa (COO of this company) for training happend on Feb7,8th in Mumbai exhibition center, Mumbai.
I went to exhibition on 7th, there are very few company stalls (General Hydroponics, Mayuresh Technologies, Vydro and one more plastic company)
first day:- after lighting the lamp, William texture started presentation about importance of hydroponic, it was nice to listen as well along with his experience, finished in half an hour, then one lady from General Hydroponics took sometime to promote their products, then took Lunch break…post lunch, CV Prakash (CEO of pet bharo) started his lecture about hydroponic, nothing i knew in the presentation since many years same ppt continuing… later vydro folks took the half an hour session to promote their products along with one more vermiculite/perlite company. just made time pass first day without any information.
as informed, pet bharo training going to start next day.
2nd day:- with plenty of desires, smiless, came to center around 9am in the morning, training not yet started, around 9.30 CV master and came started his same routine story about hydroponic(which we can see them in youtube and google as well)
he just demonstrated what is hydroponic thats all, remaining all the self shows information given… peoples started question how the nutrients, how to do composition, what is the percentage, what is the pest and disease control, what the controlling factor of diseases… lot more questioned him, for everything he answered go and find the lot more information in google, if you dont find then come to me, mail me or call me…
he just told below point
1.water should be more quality
2.seeds should be from good company
3.substrate should be more quality.
4.ph,EC should be as per normed.
all above points, everybody knows, when all the above 4 parameters are fine, then why will go for hydroponic.
while saying about Substrate, he invited one person and showed how to pour the water in the coir pith.
i was expecting as below ,
1.what is macro, micro nutrients and its importance of each one in plants growth , if we lack of any nutrient, what is the problem will encounter, then if once got problem, how to resolve the problem in hydroponic.
2.what should be composition of nutrient at each phase of plant (at least for one crop specific),
3.how to adjust the ph and EC with nutrient solution when adding to water.
final conclusion : what ever they Taught can find in Youtube and google withing just 2 days, no need to pay 1000 rupees for this.
Biggest scam of this show: Beginner Kit
they charged 3K for each person for kits, they made us fool entirely, i am pretty who ordered with lot of enthusiasm… finally what kit they given as
- one kg of calcium carbonate (20 rupees per kg)
- half kg of magnesium sulphate (288 rupee per kg, half kg worth 144 rupee)
- 250gms of other nutrient mixture (don’t the know the names of them) (assuming other nutrients as 500 rupees)
- 2 plastic trays ( each one 70 retail price, may reduce wholesale, total 140 rupee)
- one coir brick ( coir brick 60 rupees may reduce in wholesale)
- one block of sponge wiper ( 5 rupees)
- DVD ( they are selling individually with worth of 400 rupees), i am not find any useful info in this DVD videos, all are from youtube only.
whole kit with retail price not even come to 1000 rupees, they charged 3000 per kit.
profit: 3K-1K = 2K
nearly 250+ got attended for training…
its ridiculous to take chance of making cash from such learners who are trying into hydroponic.
this is my experience and view that i am sharing you guys, its purely my personal opinion, nom to anybody.
Unfortunately, no other institute in india to train in hydroponic technology with real time experience practically.
its better to come some one to stop this cheating ever in future.
