I am new to this forum.
Let me start by introducing myself.
I am mainly from IT background ,so no experience of farming. I am interested in venturing into polyhouse farming since I want to move to my native place( Hoshiarpur in Punjab).
Some questions related to polyhouse farming:
1)Are there any courses , where I can get some on-site exposure, available which can get me started?
2) For starters, I am planning to lease land instead of buying it
3) Since I am from Punjab , what are most suitable crops to target for polyhouse farming(I am thinking of either colored capsicum or seedless cucumber)?
4)I am planning to initially invest around 10 lakhs( I want to get some exposure to this , hence I am planning to just have a greenhouse for 1000-2000sqm). if it works out, I am planning to expand this.
4) How helpful are polyfarming consultancies? Is it worth to hire them?If yes what are the costs?
Any additional information will be helpful
