Mr. Jose Jacob on “Rambutan fruit trees – cultivation, marketing & economics”

Mr. Jose Jacob is the Managing Director of Homegrown Biotec, Kottayam, Kerala. He is grown up in a family with a strong agri legacy and always enticed by the concept of food grown on trees. Mr. Jose Jacob says considering the toil and volatility of field crops due to biotic and abiotic factors, and the instability of cash crop prices falling prey in the hands of industrial buyers , farming is always risky and not lucrative, which could not keep the young generation in the loop. These facts always challenged him to identify a sustainable farming model which encompasses better returns to attract the youth to the most critical aspect of food security of the nation. So, they have found Homegrown Biotec for farming, propagating and promoting tropical fruits and which their dream will make Kerala, the fruit basket of India and foresee at least a fraction of the young generation going back to their farms to make our nation healthy and wealthy.
