Appreciate your response. Actually the poster is asking about the cost of green house construction.
Based on my enquiry, the lowest cost of green house construction is around 500/m2 for basic type with no climate controls in India.
So an acre of green house structure alone will cost 20 lakhs (1 acre == 4046 sq m, cost = 4046 * 500 ~ 20 lakhs)..
In US, a farmer is able to construct at 30 Rs/ m2. So the total cost for 1 acre green house structure is around 1,25,000 Rs.
See the vast difference in the cost... Cost of labor in US is considerably higher than in India and hence the cost should be less in India.
1 acre basic greenhosue costs 20 lakhs in India where as it costs 1, 25000 (1 lakh, 25 thousand, after conversion) in US.
Can someone explain this????
Btw, the below figures indicate cost of cultivation, yields etc and not the basic infrastructure cost of erecting a greenhouse.
