    Stevia Cultivation
    Description:
    Stevia

    Latin name : STEVIA REBAUDIANA
    Family : Chrysanthemum
    Common Name : Stevia
    Parts Used : Leaves

    Introduction :
    Stevia leaves have functional and sensory properties superior to those of many other high potency sweeteners. Stevia is likely to become a major source of high potency sweetener for the growing natural food market in the future. Although Stevia can be helpful to anyone, there are certain groups who are more likely to benefit from its remarkable sweetening potential. These include diabetics, those interested in decreasing caloric intake, and children.

    Plant Description :
    Stevia rebaudiana is a small perennial growing up to 65-80 cm tall, with sessile, oppositely arranged leaves. Different species of Stevia contain several potential sweetening compounds, with Stevia rebaudiana being the sweetest of all. Stevia is a semi-humid subtropical plant that can be grown easily like any other vegetable crop even in the kitchen garden. The soil should be in the pH range of 6.5- 7.5; well-drained red soil and sandy loam soil. Saline soils should be avoided to cultivate this plant.

    Distribution :
    Stevia is been successfully cultivated in the recent years at many areas of Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Kerela, Tamil Nadu and Orissa. The increasing demands for natural sweeteners have driven the farmers in India for Stevia cultivation in large scale.

    Chemical composition :
    Diterpene Glycoside is the group of natural sweeteners that have been extracted from Stevia. The leaves of wild Stevia plants contain 0.3 % dulcoside, 0.6% rebaudioside C, 3.8 % rebaudioside A and 9.1 % stevioside.

    Uses of Stevia :
    Stevia is safe for diabetics, as it does, not affect blood sugar levels.
    Stevia does not have the neurological or renal side effects of some of the artificial sweeteners.
    Stevia possess anti-fungal and anti-bacterial property also in addition to its other versatile uses. It can be safely used in herbal medicines, tonics for diabetic patients and also in the daily usage products like mouthwashes, and tooth pastes.
    Mild Stevia leaf tea offers excellent relief for an upset stomach
    Brief Investment Strategy:

    100 KGS OF STEVIA EXTRACT CAN BE PROCESSED INTO 8-12 KGS OF FINAL PRODUCT ( WHITE SUGAR)
    WHICH IS 8-12%, THE FINAL PRODUCT IS CALLED "STEVIOCIDES".


    Cost per acre

    ( expenses such as land, irrigation, plants, plantation cost, natural manure, labour cost, bore well cost, processing machine cost & Misce cost)

    Rs.2.10 lacs per acre (one time cost)

    Rs.0.50 lac per acre/year (recurring cost per year)

    Yield from Each Acre: 3600 kg / year / acre

    Total Produce per acre per year in Rupees: 3600 x 70 = Rs.2.52 lacs

    For First year,
    Profit per 1 acres per year in Rupees: Rs.2.52 lacs –2.10 lac = 0.42 lacs
    From Second Year onwards,
    Profit per 1 acres per year in Rupees: Rs.2.52 lacs – 0. 50 lac = 2.02 lacs

    Minimum Investment Required: 5 acres & above


    Kind Regards.

    Default Stevia

    Dear Dharmesh S. Gandhi,
    Why You posting different numbers on yield and price on stevia ?

    1) http://www.agricultureinformation.co...formation.html


    Cost per acre

    ( expenses such as land, irrigation, plants, plantation cost, natural manure, labour cost, bore well cost, processing machine cost & Misce cost)

    Rs.2.10 lacs per acre (one time cost)

    Rs.0.50 lac per acre/year (recurring cost per year)

    Yield from Each Acre: 3600 kg / year / acre

    Total Produce per acre per year in Rupees: 3600 x 70 = Rs.2.52 lacs

    For First year,
    Profit per 1 acres per year in Rupees: Rs.2.52 lacs 2.10 lac = 0.42 lacs
    From Second Year onwards,
    Profit per 1 acres per year in Rupees: Rs.2.52 lacs 0. 50 lac = 2.02 lacs

    Minimum Investment Required: 5 acres & above


    2)http://www.agricultureinformation.co...ct-stevia.html

    Cost per acre

    ( expenses such as land, irrigation, plants, plantation cost, natural manure, labour cost, bore well cost, processing machine cost & Misce cost)

    Rs.3.45 lac per acre (one time cost)

    Rs.1 lac per acre/year (recurring cost per year)

    Yield from Each Acre: 4000 kg / year / acre

    Total Produce per acre per year in Rupees: 4000 x 90 = Rs.3.6 lacs

    Hence Profit per 1 acres per year in Rupees: Rs.3.6 lacs - 1 lac = 2.6 lacs

    Minimum Investment Required: 5 acres & above



    3)http://www.agricultureinformation.co...-projects.html


    Cost per acre

    ( expenses such as land, irrigation, plants, plantation cost, natural manure, labour cost, bore well cost, processing machine cost & Misce cost)

    Rs.2.00 lac per acre (one time cost)

    Rs.0.75 lac per acre/year (recurring cost per year)

    Yield from Each Acre: 3600 kg / year / acre

    Total Produce per acre per year in Rupees: 3600 x 80 = Rs.2.88 lacs

    Hence Profit per 1 acres per year in Rupees: Rs.2.88 lacs 0.75 lac = 1.13 lacs

    Minimum Investment Required: 5 acres & above

    hi
    this is an honest farmers reply.
    I tried capsicum last year. I was told 4Kg per plant production and 12000 plants per acre. Now do your maths I ended up with less than half 9 tons only to be exact from my half acre. Also the timing is vital . You must sow in june and plant in july to finish production lates by january so that the rates dont fall. After transport and commission the best rates I got were 75 iin hand. Average of season is unlikely to go above 50 .
    Its profitable to do in shade net and that is all it requires. I would think twice before bringing 35 lakhs worth of green house into capsicum production

    What are the benefits of growing in green house. Is it really necessary. Capsicum is a hot weather plant and grows better in sun, rather then in a green house.

    Can someone please clarify...
