Poly house cost in India
Types of polyhouse farming cost per acre are given below:
- Fan pad polyhouse ( Approx 55 lakh – 1 acre polyhouse cost).
- Natural ventilated polyhouse ( Approx 32 lakh is the cost of polyhouse per acre in India).
Types of polyhouse structure
Natural ventilated polyhouse – The polyhouse does not demand for extra charges till 4 years but after 4 years you should change the entire polythene of the polyhouse because the anti property of the polyethene dies after 3.5 to 4 years. The role of this anti-property is to prevent the ultraviolet rays of the sun to enter the polyhouse. Please note that whether the polythene sheet is damaged or not you should change it after 3 to 4 years because it loses its anti property and after losing anti-property there is hardly any difference between an open field and this polyhouse.
So make sure to replace the polythene sheet after 3 to 4 years accordingly, the cost of changing the entire polythene sheet of a one-acre polyhouse is around 6 lakh Indian Rupees.
Poly house cost per acre
Naturally ventilated polyhouse cost in 1 acre is around 32 lakh and after 50 % subsidy by the central government, it reduces to 16 lakh. After adding around Rs 1 lakh for some miscellaneous charges it becomes Rs 17 lakh yes this is the figure that you have to pay for 1-acre natural ventilated polyhouse . Hence we can say the cost of 1-acre natural ventilated polyhouse is Rs 17 lakh
Fan pad poly house – fan pad poly house is more costly then natural polyhouse. Fan pad poly house cost per acre is around Rs 55 lakh. It is not compulsory to form a polyhouse in exact one acre land it depends on your need and the only difference is the price will decrease if you will increase the size of the polyhouse.
What we can grow in polyhouse?
Farmers can grow vegetables and flowers in the polyhouse however, flowers can give you greater returns in comparison to vegetables but you should keep changing the flower species don’t repeat the same flower consecutively. You need to study before selecting any crop in the polyhouse don’t select those crops that grow well in open spaces however they can be grown in polyhouse as well. You should utilize the full advantage of the polyhouse hence you can choose some off-season crops and maintain the climate for these off-season crops so that they can give you good benefits.
Before growing the crop you need to survey the market and select the most demandable crops in the market so that you can take good advantage. You should meet the agriculture experts and follow their advice to improve your agriculture benefits.

In two hot months when the temperature goes over 40° C you should try some trick to low down the temperature of the polyhouse.
Poly house pros and cons
Polyhouse subsidy matters
- Polyhouse farming is more beneficial then open house farming.
- After few year patience it can shift your profit at higher side.
- Polyculture is an advanced agriculture type.
- Investment is quite big for small farmers even after 50 % subsidy given by the government.
- 16 lakh is definitely not a small amount. The government needs to improvise the subsidy amount if they really want to help the farmers otherwise it’s worthless to make such kind of schemes.
Subsidy should be 90 to 95 % for small farmers and 85-90 % for the rest farmers this will encourage farmers to start polyfarming on large scale which will automatically increase the crop production and once crop production increases government can export the crop on large scale that will automatically cover the subsidy amount as well. This is the correct way to appreciate the farmer’s.
One can grow crops throughout the year without waiting for any particular season. The Polyfarming method is beneficial because there are fewer pests and insects in a polyhouse.
