Is open field flower cultivation an attractive business?
During the 1990’s, big capital intensive floriculture projects took off in India. Some of them like Karuturi have been a big global success. Many others faced enormous financial difficulties and struggled to repay their bank loans. But what about less capital intensive open field flower cultivation? Is there a future for cultivating flowers without repeating the mistakes of the 1990’s?
