My target is to build a system having vertical integration and horizontal integration. I have a stable too. I have 5 buffalo and one cow which produces a very high quality milk. I do not feed them with dan (Cattle feed) available in market but I feed them with coconut cake with some 8 to 10% oil. Milk quality is very superior. It is sweet. I do not feed them with cotton seed as most of the cotton is genetically modified and farmers uses lots of insecticide. This will go in milk. I am in a process of leasing some 2.5 lakh sq Ft of land. Once it is done, I will plant Super Napier grass, alpha alpha grass and some other desi grass which are highly nutrition value. Once that is done , i will start acquiring new cattle. I will put a Gobar gas plant as well. My target is to produce double the grass than I require at any time. All this will give me a quality desi fertilizer which will help me doing organic farming. I started this just 7-8 months back and today I own (On lease or on shared basis) about 20 farms. I grow organic food there except in 3 farms where I used DAP. I am planning to buy couple of land followed by one more.@HariPrasad-1 Excellent work,bro! I'm glad that someone from the forum is venturing in this field that needs drastic changes for good future.
Since you mentioned Guwar in last post,i would like to mention a product from guwar that is in good demand from various industries such as Food, Chemical and even Hydrocarbon Refineries (i.e. Oil),though you may have already heard about it
Guar gum,a thickening agent made from Guwar
It is estimated that India leads in production of Guwar with 80% global market share,and this product may be a good source of income outta it due to its demand from a lot of different industries.
P.S. - the word Guwar came from Sanskrit "Gau-Aahar" i.e. Gaay ka Ghaas,so i guess in past it was mostly cultivated as cattle fodder but somehow humans started consuming it :-/
Because of my fair and generous dealing and good will I have created, whosoever wants to do farming in shared basis come to me only. I have got almost 40 thousand Rs from lease of tractor and rotavators in last one month. This together with my milk income finances lots of my expenses which I would have otherwise spent from my pocket. My new venture has expanded beyond my imagination and exception and has surpassed that of my friend who does same thing but in little different manner. Just give you guys an rough idea, I will spend about Rs 70 k in seeds only.
Once my venture is settled, I will go for special crop such as black rice, Ayurvedic medicines, Stevia, fruit plants, teak wood plants etc. My family members and friend advises me to go slow on this but most of them know that I will do whatever I like and won't follow their advise.
I am convincing my ultra rich friends to invest some amount there. They can get manifold return in long run. If I am bale to convenience them, my plan is to build a farm house society like one in photo bellow. It is in same area and my friend has a farm house there. and one multi purpose resort cum destination wedding cum naturalistic center. Let us see whether I am able to convince them or not.
