You can check out the Workshop on commercial dairy farming by Amruta Dairy Farms

The farm is run by an old friend and his brothers. He left his job in IT and started dairy farming.

Can a company own agricultural land? Are plantations an exception?

Any links to literature on the subject will be highly appreciated.

  • Private limited company can lease farms for cultivation. (of directors or others)
  • The new concept of Producer Company is created under companies act, 2013 for agricultural purpose.

This is his first year into serious farming and so we do lack on the experience front. To be honest everytime he goes there and brings photos of the farm, I am tempted to leave this corporate life and go live there, away from all the mad rush of the city.

Anybody with any experience in Ginger farming, would like to know more about this field. any stories there?
Replying to a 9 year old thread, But I wasnt a member when this post was made!
Yes we recently harvested Ginger on a 1 acre lot, and it was a good learning experience. Let me know if you are still looking for information, or already have become an expert!

I am looking to buy 30 to 40 high yielding jackfruit saplings for my place in Kerala near Kochi airport. I am advised that Karnataka varieties may not suite commercial farming in Kerala climate. Any pointers on this topic and where to source the saplings will be helpful

Why don't you try the local agricultural department office in Kochi? I am sure they should be able to direct you to the right place even if they don't sell.

Thanks. I purchases couple of plants from the government farm opposite to DLF Kakkanad (forgot the name of the office), but they didn't have in bulk. Let me see if I they can guide further on this.

Can some of you farmers share the impact of Coronavirus on farming sector in this thread.

Everyone still has to eat, no one can reduce food consumption. Please share your views on that thread.

I have about 20 quintals of radish laying at my farm with no buyers and my agent says regular vendors who purchase from him have vanished.

Very funny situation has developed, retail prices have gone through the roof but wholesale prices have crashed. Now banking upon wheat harvest due in another 15- 20 days.

Sorry to hear this. Read similar situation for tomato and bottle-guard farmers. And as you said, retail prices are going through the roof

This mentions one of the causes as lack of transportation to move it to city.

Now looks to be resolved - there was a post on SM about a pass being issued for movement. Karnataka government has started to allow produce movement within and to neighboring states.

However, this does not seem to be in one of the recent circulars that I was able to check. So an updated notice should be coming through soon. The notice seems to consider that stocks are available locally, and will last thru the lockdown :(

This is from my brother in law from Belgaum district. He had grown Ridge gourd, Beans, Chillies etc and the "agents" from Belgaum have refused to pick the stock. He also has a dairy but not able to send the daily quota of milk to Goa.

This was as of yesterday.

The effect isn't much but the effect is still there on the farming sector. The local government is very supportive on this front. They've promised to buy the produce for a very competitive rate and they're indeed procuring. Our produce was to be picked up by the agents from the Govt. by now but the logistical challenges are playing the spoilsport.

But the Govt. wouldn't be picking up niché produce (a more sorted and premium grade of rice in my case). So that obviously has to go to the market. Half of our current produce belongs to the second category because there are quite a few takers for the same. There are takers for it even during the lockdown but the prices they're quoting are atrocious. The extension will do no good to the already dwindling market.
