We can excute our ideas at ground level.
Protected cultivation is a farm practice in which crops are growing in a controlled environment. In this farm method, all the essential factors such as temperature, humidity, light, and others, are regulated as per the crop’s growth need. All the necessary farming conditions easily controlled as per requirement. The farming method is healthier and provides large production without any diverse conditions. The method of protected cultivation plants controlled fully, partially or modified to protect the crop from adverse weather. There are many types of protected agriculture available such as forced ventilated, greenhouse, naturally ventilated Polyhouse, insect-proof net house, shade net house, plastic tunnel, and mulching. We bring the client closer to the vendor.
Micropropagation is the clonal propagation of plants in closed vessels under aseptic conditions. Inside the vessels, the plants are grown on culture media that contain nutrients and growth regulators, and are described as in vitro, which means 'in glass'. In contrast, soil-grown plants are described as in vivo.According to the report published by Allied Market Research, the global plant tissue culture market generated $382.30 million in 2020, and is expected to reach $895.00 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.5% from 2021 to 2030.

Vertical farming is an Israeli farming technique. You will be surprised to know that with this technique you can get 10-12 acres of production from only 1 acre and earn handsomely (profit in Vertical Farming) from turmeric cultivation as well as exotic vegetables. Profitable Business Idea: It is estimated that by 2050 India’s population will reach 1.64 billion and feeding such a huge population is going to be a challenge. Due to urbanization & industrialization, we are losing arable land every day. Going by this scenario, that day is not very far when fruits & vegetables will be grown in factories instead of fields. With this, a new type of Israeli technology is getting popular in developed countries. This is called vertical farming. That is, farming in many layers, but not on the ground, above the ground. While field and greenhouse takes space, this alternative saves it. You can even do this farming on barren land. Vertical farming requires drip irrigation.
It is farming in sustainable ways meeting society's present food & textile needs, without compromising the ability for current or future generations to meet their needs.In the face of rapidly advancing climate change, biodiversity loss, & water scarcity, global agriculture must swiftly and decisively shift toward sustainability.Farmers and researchers have developed a thoroughly studied pathway to this transition: agroecological farming systems that mimic natural ecosystems, creating tightly coupled cycles of energy, water, and nutrients. A critical feature of agroecological systems is that they replace fossil fuel- and chemical -intensive management with knowledge-intensive management. Hence, the greatest sustainability challenge for agriculture may well be that of replacing non-renewable resources with ecologically skilled people and doing so in ways that create & support desirable rural livelihoods.
Hydroponics, a subset of hydroculture, is a growing plant without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent. Growing demand for sustainable and protected farming practices and higher yield of crops grown under hydroponic facilities over traditional farming are the driving factors for its growth. According to the study the average yield of lettuce per acre yearly was recorded between 9-10 tons in soil-based agriculture and 300-400 tons in hydroponics agriculture. Increased hydroponics' investment rate over the traditional soil-based agricultural process through increased yield and minimal water cultivation might further boost the agricultural communities towards adopting the hydroponics technologies during the forecast period.
The global fish farming market size was valued at $285,359.7 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $ 378,005.5 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.8%. Fish farming, which is more commonly known as aquaculture, is a common practice all over the world and makes up a very large portion of the food industry. In fact, it's estimated that one of every four fish consumed was bred on a fish farm. With the declining number of fisheries worldwide and a steady increase in the demand for fish, fish farming has become a vital alternative for the supply of fish and fish products. Fish production in coming years will depend more heavily on aquaculture, which will help preserve the natural ecosystems of our overfished oceans, lakes, and rivers.
