- First is auto high tech setup
- second is normal setup For Hydroponics cultivation setup
The ASSETS you will need would be,
- PVC PIPE
- UPVC PIPES
- FOOD CRATES
- WATER RE-CIRCULATION MOTOR
- DOSING SYSTEM
- NFT FLAT BEDS
- GREEN HOUSE
- POLY HOUSE
- NET HOUSE etc.

PROCESS of Hydroponics farming system

after one week transfer it into the system, after putting seeds in the system, add nutrients in them, In starting days or in the beginning keep the nutrient quantity of 300 PPM but as plants starts growing, you can increase this quantity.
And till it reaches to it final stage, its nutrient consumption should be 600 PPM. After this when your crop is ready, you can cut it easily. After cutting the crop, you can store it in the cold storage, or sell it according to the market demand.
Mr.Jasmeet Kandhari (Ponic Greens Agro Private Ltd. ) Says, It is a method of growing food without soil, it is also known as soil less farming, In this what happen is, basically leaving soil, we add nutrients in the water, the minerals which plants need, we add that minerals in the nutrients which the plants absorbs. so whatever the plant needs, we give them manually.
To start HYDROPONIC business, How much AREA you need?
You will need 500 square meter area. With this area you can easily start your hydroponic business.
After area if we talk about ELECTRICITY,
Then to run this business you will need minimum of 2 KW electricity load For this business startup
MANPOWER in Hydroponics system
You will need 5 to 8 people, in which 1 skilled and others can be unskilled also.
Where we can SELL our product?
You can supply your product as a wholesale in any supermarket, or in malls, If you want you can sell your product as retail or u can sell it online too and can earn your profits in lakhs.
COST of Hydroponics farming system
If you want to start this business with auto high tech machines, so you will need rupees 20 to 25 lakh,
but, if you want to start this business with normal machine setup, then you will need rupees 10 to 15 lakh. With this investment you can easily start your HYDROPONIC business.
PROFITABILITY of Hydroponics farming

you can produce 1000 kg the weight of any fruit or vegetables which is from this plant, is approx 350 grams, it means, according to this calculation, the production which is obtained from single batch of 45 days you can sell it in the market for approx Rs 262500.
and in this the expenditure will be the approx 60 percent on total production, It means according to this, you can earn Rs 1 Lakh as a profit easily.
