    Dear Surya,

    The equipment is designed to handle specific daily volumes of aloe leaves and various labor and utility constraints. Only as an example, a 100 hectare farm could produce 55,000 kg of aloe vera leaves daily. The equipment necessary to handle this volume would cost between $400,000 and $600,000 USD.

    Regards
    Satya.

    Dear Satya,

    You mentioned a cost of 400,000 - 600,000 USD for processing 55,000 Kg of Aloe leaves daily, which can be cultvated over 100 hectares farm.

    What is the minimum size of aloe leaves processing plant which is viable ? Can a plant of 1000Kg aloe leaves be viable, will the cost of such a plant also scale in the same manner ?
