Today we are going to shed light on keeping your agribusiness a float in volatile agro produce prices. So how can a farmer ensure that their investment stays on the secure? Let’s unpack this difficult and often asked question by many. From our desk we say DIVERSITY-Spreading your investment across several crops in a season.

DIVERSITY means selecting between two or more crops with different perishability indexes to answer to price volatility.an example potatoes, cabbages and onions can be planted on a farm at a season in 60,20,20 % ratio .if potatoes prices plummet the risk to this business is limited to a maximum 60% to directly imply that the remaining two will guarantee the investor to have enough capital to try again next season.

The second way to view investment diversity is growing highly perishables alongside crops that can be stored for some time-up to six months as the farmer monitors prices. Tomatoes for example can be grown alongside low budget crops like Butternuts that can be stored longer. When done in same season at 60,40% ratio will guarantee this grower of capital to try a second crop should tomatoes prices plunge.

Bonus to our farmers-Crop protection budgets can be moderated through proper nutrition. A healthy crop has the ability to grow rapidly mature early and fend off disease and pests through vigor. Ensure to have both basal and foliar fertilizers for your crop timely. Our nutrient range include LAVENDER RANGES and GOLDCHANCE GOLDCHANCE RANGES.
