Saffron Farming is one of the most profitable agricultural business ideas. Saffron is cultivated only in cold states. The climate of the plains is not considered suitable for this. However, it has been proved wrong by a software engineer from Pune. Software engineer Shailesh Modak has done the feat of cultivating saffron without soil.
A Successful Indoor Saffron Farmer
Shailesh is growing saffron in shipping containers with the help of aeroponic technology. Earlier he did this test with a strawberry crop. After the test was completely successful, Shailesh adopted the same technique in saffron farming.
Today, he is earning good profits from saffron cultivation. Shailesh said that he had once invested Rs 10 lakh for its cultivation. He has earned Rs 5 lakh from the first crop. Shailesh had ordered saffron seeds from Kashmir. It is cultivated in 160 square feet through shipping containers.
365 Days Farms
Since 2016, 365DFarms working to grow and serve high-quality fresh food 365 days a year. The concept of soilless agriculture, Controlled-environment agriculture, and hydroponics systems is embedded together to deliver pesticides, residue-free fresh, and clean food to our customers.
Acquiring soilless agriculture is beneficial because it saves not less than 90% of irrigated water. The benefits also include using a nearly recycled fixed amount of water along with this, most of the vegetable crops succeed and give the highest productivity in soilless agriculture than ordinary agriculture. Therefore same agricultural idea was implemented in saffron farming.
Using the CEA method increases food safety by removing sources of contamination, increasing the security of supply as it is unaffected by environmental conditions, eliminating seasonality, and creating stable market pricing which is good for farmers and consumers alike. As hydroponics does not require the use of pesticides, the plants growing in hydroponic systems are healthy and thriving, leaving them less vulnerable to pest attacks.
