If you're bored with your current work and want to try something new, we've come up with a business concept that has shown to be profitable even during a lockdown. From villages to cities, this is a commodity that is in high demand. We're talking about tomato cultivation right now. If you own a small farm or are interested in farming, you may make a lot of money by renting it out. 

In one hectare, up to 800 to 1200 quintals can be produced. Depending on the kind, production varies. That instance, if tomatoes sell for Rs 15 per kg on average and 1000 quintals are produced on average, you can make up to Rs 15 lakh profit in Tomato Farming. 

What is the best way to grow tomatoes? 

Tomatoes are usually cultivated twice a year. One begins in July-August and continues through February-March. The second begins in November-December and continues through June-July. To begin tomato cultivation, a nursery is created from seeds. Nursery seedlings are ready for planting in the fields in roughly a month. In one hectare of land, about 15,000 plants are planted. Fruits begin to develop after around 2-3 months after field planting. Tomatoes have a 9-10 month growing season. 

How Much will it cost? 

Tomatoes come in a variety of varieties. Bamboo and wire produce an excellent yield. By summing all of the expenditures from seeds, you can obtain anywhere between Rs 2.5 lakh and Rs 3 lakh in this circumstance. It costs Rs 40,000 to 50,000 for seeds, Rs 25,000 to 30,000 for wire, Rs 40,000 to Rs 45,000 for bamboo, Rs 40,000 to Rs 45,000 for mulching paper, and Rs 20,000 to Rs 25,000 for labour. On the other hand, a yield of 300-500 quintals may be obtained from a single acre of tomato growing. That is, you may get up to 800-1200 quintals from a single acre.
