Requesting advises and information

Hi Members of the Farmnest

I am interested farming but new to it. I don’t know which crop to grow and how to start an where to start.

So i am  asking you guys help to provide some suggestions and advice on how to proceed.

Do we have any training programs or workshops that i can attend to learn something about farming.

I am looking to go in small scale first like 1 to 5 acres. i am also looking for suggestions on which crops will be good to go at this period.

I looking forward to your suggestions.

please spare some time to reply me and guide me go in the right path with your experienced minds.

Thanks to everyone in advance  who spends your time in reading my message.

Regards
Chaitanya.

@ Chaitanya,

I suggest you try something small at your home, a vegetable garden may be. This way your learning curve grows well and so would be your confidence.

1 to 5 acres is no small yard in any scale.

First of all, I suggest you to check the soil & water.

Based on the reports if required you may take corrective measures. Either ways start your step with sterilizing the soil before you cultivate anything.

There are organic as well as chemical based techniques adopted for this. May be experts here can guide you more on this.

Where to start is the first question you only can answer. Anyone who can guide you needs to know location of your farm in order to suggest what to grow.

Crop depends on climatic and soil conditions of you land, how well protected it is, will you get manpower (labour for cultivation, picking, etc).
