Farmers can earn a lot by cultivating strawberries. If farmers do farming in poly houses, then their income will increase further. From this, up to Rs 6-7 lakh per hectare can be earned.
Every farmer wants his income to increase, but this is possible only when some different methods of farming are done. Even today most farmers are doing traditional farming like wheat-paddy-maize. Profit is less in such farming. On the other hand, if you do some different kind of farming, then you can get huge profits. One such farming is Strawberry farming, from which farmers can earn a lot (Agriculture Business Idea). Let us know how Strawberry Farming is done and how much profit can be made from it. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former captain of the Indian team, also cultivates strawberries.
Governments also encourage
Although governments encourage every farmer who does farming differently, the government of Jharkhand has a special focus on strawberries. The government there is encouraging the farmers to cultivate strawberries for the purpose of providing a big market for the farmers. Strawberry cultivation is being done by JSLPS by giving training and help to women farmers so that women can also become self-reliant.
How is strawberry cultivation done?
September-October is the best time for strawberry cultivation. During this, you can prepare a strawberry nursery by planting seeds. Within a month, the plants will be ready to be planted in the field. It is right to keep a temperature of 20-30 degrees for strawberry cultivation. If you want a good yield, choose a field with sandy-loam soil. Also, keep in mind that the pH of the soil should be between 5-6.5. Before planting strawberries in the field, apply cow dung manure in sufficient quantity, so that the yield is good. Drip irrigation should be used for irrigation, so that water can be saved as well as it can be easy to give fertilizer etc.
How much will be the earnings?
Farmers can earn a lot by cultivating strawberries, but for this, it is necessary that there is no loss in the crop. By the way, strawberry is also cultivated in the open field, but if you cultivate them in a polyhouse, you will get a good yield. Strawberry farming can earn a profit of up to Rs 2.5-3 lakh per acre. That is, a profit of up to Rs 6-7 lakh per hectare can be earned.
Dhoni also does strawberry cultivation
Former Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni also cultivates strawberries. He also shares some pictures of his farm on social media from time to time. He also shared a video of him eating strawberries from his farm.
