    Dear Anbalagan

    5-6 labours are enough if you are adopting staggered pruning technique.

    Otherwise during peak season you cannot manage with 5-6 labours.

    What will be the normal income per acre of jasmine cultivation after taking out all the possible costs. What might be the variation in income range due to minimum and maximum possible market prices for jasmine.

    Dear Friend

    The net profit is approximately around Rs 25000 per acre per year. This can be incresed still higher by reducing cost on labour by involving family members in the farming. This calculation is calculated for leased lands (Rs 12000/ acre) and farm gate price is Rs 18/ Kg of flowers.

    dear Sir



    jasmine starts flowering from 2 nd year after planting and the commercial yields commence from third year onwards. The Jasminum sambac varieties flower profusely in summer and also in rainy season (i.e March-August) while climbing types (Jatimalli) will flower throughout the year, with peak flowering in june - july.

    Yield

    The yield of flowers per hectare in 2500 - 3000 kg in sambac (i.e about 200 g/bush) and 3000 - 4000 kg/ha,in climber (Jatimalli i.e 200 - 250 g/vine).
    Since the jasmine flowers are highly perishable and have to be disposed off in the market within few hours after picking.

    daer friend

    A typical farm might have as much as 1 acre and as little as a quarter acre of Jasmin grandiflorum(Jasmin sambac is grown to a small extent but the bulk of the sambac comes from Madurai) One acre of land holds approximately 800-900 plants depending on the spacing. During the height of the season one plant can yield as much as 350 grams(12.5 ounces) of flowers per day. A yield of 2000 kilos(4400 lbs) of flowers per year can be gathered from an acre of land if it is well tended. One person can gather 1 kilo(2.2 lbs.) of flowers in a 2 hour period. It means that an experienced collector is able to pick over 80 individual flowers per minute or 5,000 per hour. Only when we clearly understand the labor intensive nature of their work can we do our part to use their precious products in the best possilbe way. If we fail to grasp the importance of supporting the work of the farming community by paying them fair prices, then the day will certainly come when these lovely essential oils and absolutes will no longer be available. prices of jasmine are beginning to rise in India because the Indian ruppee continues to be devalued against the US $. The people of the farming community do lead simple lives but they need a certain amount of cash to maintain that lifestyle. If they cannot receive a fair price for their floral products they will, of necessity, have to turn that land over to the cultivation of fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes because those are consumable crops.

    Default cooperatives for jasmine at Paravoor, Kerala

    Today in Kisan Krishi Deepam, I saw a repeat telecast of the cooperatives at Paravoor in Kerala. School going children help to pluck the flowers in the morning. These are packed an despatched from the Cochin (Nedumbassery) International airport the same day.

    Thus plucking the Jasmine flowers should not be considered as a drawback but as a boon for engaging sections of our society.

    Dear Vinod Kumar

    Thankyou for your valuable information on harvesting of Jasmine flowers.

    Involving school going children in this is a good idea which give them encouragement, responsibility and participation in their farm activity. But I hope the age of the children should be above 14.
