The cost of setting up an orchard is quite low. In recent periods, two types of trees are recommended: Classic Rootstock or scrub. As a Classic Rootstock on a land of 1 acre, 20 seedlings can be planted according to the type of fruit. The average of the Classic Rootstock saplings is USD 1 – 2. In this case, the cost of saplings per acre is 40 – 50 USD. In stunted trees, the situation is a little different.
You can plant 60 trees on an acre of land. The price of stunted saplings is 3.5 USD. In other words, about 210 USD sapling cost comes across. On top of these costs, it is also necessary to add plantations, irrigation, pruning and at least four years of crop growth. Experts recommend scrub trees and scuba saplings that grow more quickly and give lots of fruit. While its initial investment is expensive, it is emphasized that stunted trees are more efficient. Saplings are planted in the circuit, usually in the autumn with leaf fall until water walks to the trees in the spring. If scuba seedlings are preferred, you can also set up a garden outside this calendar. In summary, for 1 acre of land there is a cost of about USD 600 excluding the cost of the land including sapling, irrigation, maintenance and spraying.
And don’t forget the government’s support. With the help, that cost can be halved. Experts recommend that this work be done on at least 50 acres so that it can be on an economic scale. Otherwise it is difficult to make money. Industrialists want to produce at scales of 1,000 acres and above.
