Ahmedabad, India (PressExposure) May 10, 2013 -- Locus Green has got approval from State Government of Gujarat to provide end-to-end single window solutions to set up greenhouses and polyhouses for farmers, agriculturists and agronomists. In Ahmedabad district and adjoining areas, they have started helping farmers to get pre-approved subsidy and loan to build their own greenhouse. Locus Green further helps them in the designing, fabrication, correction, irrigation, automation and plantation process, which are essential for the proper functioning and operation of the greenhouse.
Says Tinesh Patel, director of Locus Green: "We aim to instill in every farmer a competency to run their own greenhouse efficiently and to harvest a quality crop with the help of in-house agronomy." They do this by assisting farmers in procurement and installation of equipment, bed preparation, purchase and plantation of correct seeds, implementing procedures to maximize produce and training farmers in greenhouse operation and maintenance. Once the crop cycle is completed, Locus Green also offers buyback services to the farmer, so that the agronomy of the State remains in a healthy rotation.
A greenhouse is a building in which plants are grown under controlled care. Greenhouses keep out pests and protect crops from excess cold and heat. Plants experience optimum growth under the controlled lighting conditions of a greenhouse. In this way, food production (depending upon the type of the crop) can be increased at least five to ten times. The quality of the crop is far better too, because it is grown with the best possible care. The usage of chemicals and fertilizer to aid in their growth is minimized too, because crops get the best natural habitat. In India, greenhouses are mostly used for growing flowers, fruits and vegetables. The closed greenhouse provides a unique, disease-free environment compared to the general outdoors. Excess humidity or dryness is also prevented and plants are watered using drip irrigation. Locus Green has started providing the following services in Gujarat:
