Re: Polyhouse technology for gerbera crop
   

Dear Swapnil,

Cutflowers-Economics of Production and ExportIn an area of floriculture or flower production, Cutflowers have assumed prominent place in respect of (1) Selectivity or type of flowers, (2) Method of cultivation, (3) Marketing and (4)Final consumer use
  1. Selectivity or type of flowers
From amongst the wide range of flowers, only certain type of flowers are grown as cutflowers because of their special features, particularly long stem or stalk. For example, rose, carnation, gerbera, gladiolus, tuberose, anthurium, etc. There is also varietial preference for them according to the choice of consumers.
  1. Method of cultivation
Open field cultivation has been a traditional practice, which is a relatively cheaper method. In modern "Hi-tech" method the cutflowers are grown in polyhouses/greenhouses requiring high capital investment. But the quality of flowers produced is superior, because inside climate or micro-climate such as temperature, humidity, light, ventilation etc is controlled. Even water application is also controlled. Even water application is also controlled. Therefore, the quality of flowers is better. They are uniform in size, colour, freshness etc. Moreover flowers can be produced throughout the year to meet the market demand-domestic as well as foreign. Since flowers are of better quality, they fetch higher prices.
  1. Marketing
Since cutflowers are of specific type and produced in polyhouses they are fresh and tender and since they are produced for specific purpose, great care is needed in their marketing viz. packing, handling, storage and transport. There should be minimum handling and transport should be quick with cooling and refrigeration facility. This is particularly necessary for cutflowers, which are produced for, export purpose.
  1. Final consumer use
Final consumer use of cutflowers is different from other flowers. Their use is of more sophisticated nature in educated and well-to-do segment of consumers. Cutflowers are mainly used for preparing bouquets, which are used in functions and ceremonies to welcome guests, VIPs and to felicitate great utility and hence fetch high prices.Economics of Production

The polyhouses in which cutflowers are grown are of various sizes ranging from 500 sq.m.to 10,000 sq.m. (One hectare). They also differ in terms of cost as (a) low cost-Rs.125/m2 , (b) medium cost- Rs.500/ m2 and (c) high cost-Rs.2000/ m2, depending upon material used for construction and other facilities provided in them. An investment in a polyhouse of one hectare size with medium cost comes to almost Rs. 50 lakhs, which is quite high. Considering high initial investment, the Government of India has introduced scheme of subsidy from 10% to 50%.

The following study gives economics of cultivation of gerbera flowers (estimate for 2500 sq.m. area that is 17500 plants).
Sr.

I1Fixed costs3,50,000

2Sale value @ Rs. 2.50 per flower43,75,000
3Total cost of two years18,26,300
4Net profit for two years25,48,700
5Per flower 
 a) cost of cultivation1.04
 b) sale price2.50
 c) net profit1.46
Per flower cost of cultivation of roses is much higher (Rs. 6.85) than that of Gerbera (Rs. 1.04). Production of Gerbera is also quite profitable.Subsidy SchemeLooking to very high initial investment in polyhouses and to encourage more floriculturists to undertake cutflowers production for export purpose, the Govt. of India introduced an incentive scheme of subsidy for construction of polyhouses. The details of the scheme are as follows.

3High cost200050010,00,000101,00,000

Thus the subsidy varies from 10% to 50% with a ceiling to the amount upto Rs. 1,00,000.

You have to search the market for that. Market rate depends on the area.
