I tried with 1 acer (near Bangalore) of colored capsium last year. With respect to cultivation and maintaince, it is relatively easy. I had a buy back with fixed rate of Rs 35/kg from one of the local companies. For the first 5 months things went on smoothly but there after faced problems with the buy back company. The company was rejecting the crop giving some reasons but actually the rate in the market had fallen and he did not want to continue to give the fixed price. Finaly after 6 months I removed the crop and planted Carnations.
I think for colour capsium its very important you have a buyer as its not easy to sell in open market.
If you want to install Green Houses which is used by us for 2 years, we can give you at best rate.
Benefit to you :
1. Your Total Project Cost will be decrease (More than 50%)
2. You have to change only Net of Green House rather materials are having life of more than 10 years from now onwards.
3. You can gain experience by installation of this Green House with lower cost so next time (at the time of expansion) you can be on a safer side always and you can take your own decision for a improvement.
4. You can also avail the Subsidy from Central & Gujarat Govt. as per norms there is no violation of any rules by buying of second hand Green House.
2 acres is 8000 sq. mts so @650 per sq. mt you are looking at spending Rs. 52 lakh on greenhouse. This is the normal costing for all the greenhouses and there are many farmers who have them. Plus you get almost 25% subsidy from NHB and State govt may also give you some more. (Depending on which state you come from)
Main cost in hydroponics is greenhouse alone. so even at Rs. 1000 per sq. ft you are pending 80 lakh for 2 acres which is very reasonable considering the sales of 200 tons of peppers.
Do explain your calculations though...they are baffling..
Wanted to know:
3. I am farmer farmer of some other state and having farmer certificate of that particular state. Can I buy agriculture land in Gujarat. If yes, can i get subsidy and other facility? if no, what is other option available with me.?
Agri-landholders of Gujarat can only buy Agriculture Land.
Non Gujarati Farmers are not treated as Farmer, for any assistance in Gujarat.
However, you can form a company/ Co-operative group and establish any Agri Business in Gujarat, but non-individual entity can hold Agri land but not entitled for any subsidy under NHM/RKVY.
When 55-year-old Banwarilal Jangir of Shekhawati, Rajasthan decided to turn to organic farming four years ago, he wasn't very sure of its benefits. He hoped it would improve the harvest in his 1.94-hectare farm in Nawalgarh, Rajasthan, where he cultivated wheat, fenugreek, chickpeas and isabgol. The yield wasn’t high in the first year, but he wasn’t disheartened. He struggled for a while, often selling the produce at market value, without making much profit. Three years down the line, Jangir's efforts have finally paid off. Two companies have lined up to buy his crop this year and he’s hopeful of getting a good deal at least 20 per cent more. His story is echoed across Rajasthan, where thousands of farmers have opted for a way of cultivation that does away with pesticides.

Dear Greenhouse Lovers,
Let me inform you that colour capsicum is grown in open field and got good result too in Bangalore. Cultivation is done through natural farming without applying any chemicals.
If you understand the nature, it has got power to produce everything on its own efforts, subject to we should not alter the natural process. 2nd batch of crop is started yielding now and farmer is supplying to produce to ISKCON in Bangalore. Farmer is proud of crop yield. But, worry is marketing he says.
Nice to hear from you that you are interested in greenhouse farming.
We are Gujarat based (Vadodara) greenhouse manufacturer.
Protected farming is a new trend for farming. Capsicum is one of the good product for greenhouse.
Cost of greenhouse for 1000 sq m is approx Rs 8.85 L.
Govt of Gujarat will provide 50% subsidy according to the project proposal.
If you have a query regarding this, u can private msg me.
