“Farmers in Haryana & Punjab are earning Rs 8-10 Lakh per acre in agro forestry”. -Economic Times
Agro-forestry is the new trend that the Indian farming community has been following for few years now. Growing trees which provide raw material for making plywood is seen as more profitable as compared to regular cereal crops like wheat or paddy. Trees like Poplar, Melia Dubia and Eucalyptus are being most commonly grown as these trees grow fast and generate great returns.
We have come up with some more factors that make agro-forestry a lucrative investment opportunity:
• The price of plywood is on a steady rise since last 4 years. Research shows that by 2019, the Indian plywood industry may reach to INR 479.7 billion Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR).
• There is a rise in the number of homes and commercial buildings due to the growth in population, which in turn has increased the demand for furniture, plywood and veneer.
• The benefits of agro-forestry are multiple. The farmers can sell the harvest before full maturity (used for making matchsticks, paper, pencils etc.) or, the crop can be kept for a longer time to earn a lump sum amount on the harvest.
• Strategic planning is the cornerstone of agro-forestry. The farmers can reap profits annually by selling a specific part of harvest each year instead of selling all the produce in one go. Thus, the farmers have the option to go for both, short and long term investments.
Agro-forestry assures good returns with no fear of crop failure. You just have to invest once on saplings and fertilizers and reap profits for the coming decade. Thus, it is literally harvesting money from trees for both farmers and plywood industries.
AGROCORP is one of the leading cultivators of the plywood tree Melia Dubia. The tree starts to earn returns when it reaches a period of maturity of 2 years. On full maturity, the tree can be used for plywood and veneer manufacturing. We have tie ups with different industries for the fast sale of the produce. We strive hard to generate good returns on investments for both farmers and commercial investors.
