have seen that there are several advertisements by Tissue culture labs, and marketing persons on TC Banana, Promognate in various forums. …etc. But could not find or understand the real picture of economics:-
As per Jain irrigation website, aprx 1450 plants can be cultivated per acre and aprx INR 55000 per is the investment cost, So based on that
1450 plans x 25kg yield per plant x min cost of Rs 5/kg = rs/ Rs 1.81 lacs less 0.55 cost = net realization of 1.26lac per acere.
If so much income is there, why farmers coming up with loss. just 10 acere holding, with above calculations there must 12.6lac per year. very fancy numbers.
it is teh case of Banana only which has just 5/kgm there other TC companies offering promognatae, mango…etc so with these new developments it is easy to make a farmer crorepati… then why it is not happening like that.
One more thing understand for TC, drip irregation is must ? understand drip irrigation will cost rs. 45000 per acere? does it worth to do that ?
ALso whether TC cultivations can do in organic way or have todepend on chemical fertilisation as suggested and controlled by TC companies. ?
what is actual truth?? Hope TC hype is not going to eb disasster for farmers and farmer can really earn and make profits?
