    Thanks sir. I got the post online while I was doing something else and I feel it will be helpful. Within the estimate there, it was stated that 800k is perfect for starting up this business however lower amount can as well start it.

    Depending on your financial stability or budgeted start up capital. You may decide to use manual instead of going for high machineries. 400k will still be OK to start. You may as well start small and grow later after your first year of farming. Get small plot of land for the beginning.
