I am Shekhar from uttarakhand. Currently I am working in a IT company in Delhi. I am not much interested in IT sector and want to go for farming. I am from a very poor family background, I do not have land for farming but I can arrange 1000 sq. mtr land for greenhouse/polyhouse. I have few queries as mentioned below:
- Could you guys please help me to understand why polyhouse are so costly (I heard 35 to 45 lacs per acre)? I just see plastic cover, shed net, a woodan/PVC or metal structure, water tank, drip irregation system, electric motor for water supply. Is somthing else that make it so expensive? Please make me clear.
- Could you give me an idea how to start polyhouse farming with very low capital?
- Is it possible to start farming on 1000 sq. mtr. with 2 Lacs capital? if not, what can be the least budget?
- How to apply for government schemes/subsidies?
- what are the steps of production and marketing with least capital and high income?
I wud appreciate if you guys can please answer my queries.
