Hi Farmnest team,
I have been wanting to get into agriculture for a long time. Finally the time has come and for last few months I have been updating myself with the latest in the field. With over 12+ yrs of corporate experience, I think a business like approach with adequate backup plans is what the need of the day is. I have almost zeroed in on growing Stevia as a main crop with backup plan of Dairy farming and vegetable crops. Just when I thought I was ready, I bumped into Hydroponic farming… now if effectively used, this method reduces the space requirement to almost 20-25% of the original requirement. This means lower investment and bigger space for alternative options (maybe a small training center for other farmers on the modern methods of farming or even an evening school…) for this to happen I need your help…
I would like some suggestions if stevia can be grown hydroponically and would really appreciate some guidance on it. I’m ready to pay consultancy fee and travel if required.
Mod note: Our guess is that you meant hydroponics, corrected.
