Where do farmers buy their plastic Mulching film from?

Dear Farmer Friends!,

I hope you all will be able to help me with research!

I have recently got into manufacturing of plastic LDPE Mulching Film - Black and Silver and also other colours! Microns 25, 30, 50 and 100…

I would love to sell DIRECTLY to the farmers at a discounted price as there won’t be any intermediaries ( like wholesaler and retailer ) ,

I would like to pass on the savings directly to the farmer by cutting down the middleman…

but my only concern is if it will be logistically economical to send directly to the individual farmer as their quantity buying capacity will be much less than the wholesaler .

Pls help me with my below question…

  1. Where do farmers buy their mulching film from ?
    2)how much are you currently paying for 30 micron black silver mulch film with 400 meters length and 1.2 meters width?

  2. do you think my idea can work ? I think it can work if a group of farmers can place a combined order or a farmers club can place an order…

  3. can you think of any channel through which I can sell directly to farmers?

If this works out properly then I might offer Shade Nets too…

Thank you in Advance and pls feel free call me if you would like to advise on phone…I would encourage to post here too as all can benefit from the replies

Thank you in advance


Hi Darshan I can suggest you  following points

  1. Get authorized by some government Body
  2. Give free consultation & assistance to farmers about Subsidy, in other world tell them to buy from you with government subsidy , already your product is low cost due to reduction of intermediates ,
  3. Post your add in agri related news papers & magazines ( like Agrowon) , and mention that you are selling it directly to farmer , at moderated price ,
  4. If you are good with your financial perception for business expansion you can tie up with other agri finance sources, both Government and non government institutions like www.safl.in
  5. make website, participate in agri expo ,

Vasudha Green Farms,

Look my friend you are business man To be very honest you are not want to share your profit with others Indirectly you want to sell your product in a same rate of retail price. And save profit and earn more profit you will not get success. You don’t have any unique product in your hand, do you know how many companies and trader involve in this business. This is totally BAKVAS funda of business and Take my word you cannot success on this concept. You don’t want to cut distributor commission you want to sell on market price from factory and want to earn big profit.

Try to increase retail 10% every year not from 1st day of business. it will take another 10 years for getting response directly.

And Believe in TURN OVER and happy with 5 to 7% profit because you are manufacturer always think about selling fast not viable to do stock.

Thank you Sir for your Prompt Mail,

Iam also suggesting you take steps in getting Subsidy by State Govt. Departments as suggested by our Brother  srnarnaware.

Some are using 200 Microns also for Mango ,Sapota (Chikku), Guva etc.

I don’t know why Mr VIPUL asked such questions being manufacturer of polyfilms ::) :astonished:

Dear Sri khannae ,

You are right. What is Sri vipul, I don’t know.

Last week , Sri vipul sir stated in a seperate column,  he manufactures mulching film and wants to sell . I telephoned to Sri Vipul sir  and asked his price, as I want little more quantity of 30 and 50 microns film for mulching. I told him that I wants to purchase and asked his price per roll and/ or weight price.

To my call, he replied saying  he will call me back after 1 hour. This happened 4 or 5 days back. Till now he did not call me . I don’t know the reason, but he may be busy.

With best wishes,    g.p.rao,    farmer
