Profitable Businesses in Agriculture

The lives of about 20.5 million people in India depend on livestock. Earning money from animal husbandry farming is one of the most spectacular tasks. Here we are telling about 7 such works related to animal husbandry, out of which you can increase your earning in agriculture.

Dairy farming

It is very easy for a farmer to start dairy farming by rearing milk cattle. Moreover, government is providing a loan up to 7 Lakh for dairy farmers through different schemes. NABARD also provides subsidy on loan for this work. There is always a demand for milk and milk products, so dairy farming is a profitable business in any case.

Goat rearing

Goat rearing is a part of animal husbandry. Goat rearing supplies both milk and meat. Goat rearing work can also be started at a very small level. Goat farming requires less space, less capital and less care. Goat milk demand is very high in cities and its milk is sold very expensive.

Pearl Farming

Moti (Pearl) is being cultivated in many places of India. This work can be started on very small land. The training of pearl farming is given at the Central Institute of Fresh Water Aquaculture, Bhubaneswar.
