Hydroponics, as the name suggest, involves soil-less propagation of plants. This ancient system of cultivating plants is finding favor among new-age farmers too. Since there is no need for soil, there is no need to look at soil preparation or take care against soil based pests. This considerably saves a lot of time, money and effort.
Here is a simple 3-step guide to set up your hydroponics business.
Do a feasibility analysis for your business
Hydroponics is not just about cultivating plants in large numbers. You need to think about the types of plants, the climate, the shade structure, environmental conditions, labor, marketing strategies, equipment, etc. among other things. There are different types of hydroponics systems and you will need to decide which one best fits your business plans. You must dedicate time and effort in conducting a feasibility analysis for your business using hydroponics.
Business, funding and marketing plans
Taking up a hydroponics business will need funding just like in any other business. As you go about selecting the place, the plant and set up the systems, you will need to get investors and capital funding for your business. Moreover, you must also start working on your marketing plans as there will no time to think when the plants are ready for the market.
Hire a hydroponics consulting firm
Instead of attempting a do-it-yourself approach to your hydroponics business, it makes sense to hire a professional hydroponics consulting firm to take care of all the nitty-gritty details of handling the business.
