Rose farming cost and profit
Rose farming cost
While calculating rose cultivation cost
Price of 1 rose plant - Rs 9 to Rs 11
rose yield plantation per acre - Around 30,000 plants can be planted in 1 acre
30,000 rose yield X Rs 9 = Rs 2,70,000 is your plants cost
Lets calculate other cost along with rose plant cost
Rs 4,30,000 Four lakh thirty thousand
Rose farming profit per acre
Now lets calculate the rose acre farm networth
1 rose flower selling price - Rs 3 to Rs 18 per rose flower
1 rose plant can produce around 18 to 20 flowers
If 30,000 plants then 30,000 plants X 18 flowers (per plant) = 5,40,000 flowers
suppose out of 540000 flowers 40 k flowers were damaged
If 1 rose flower price is Rs 4 then Rs 4 X 5,00000 = Rs 20 lakh
Reduce the rose cultivation cost 430,000 from the rose profit i.e Rs 20 lakh
Rose net worth - Rs 20 lakh - Rs 430,000 = 15,70,000
Net profit - Rs 15 lakh seventy thousand
