HELP NEEDED HELP NEEDED FOR MY MODERN AGRICULTURE FARM.I am Ashik, I am from Bangladesh, a small south Asian country. Today I am here to present to you my ambitious project The Biotechnology Firm, my dream is to establish a biotechnology firm in my country Bangladesh. In a country of more than 160 million people, regular food supply at low price in a big challenge, technological advancement in my country’s agricultural sector is the need of the hour, so as a student of bachelor of science in agriculture, I want to show and inspire youth with my startup in a digital biotechnology firm in my country. But as a small entrepreneur of agricultural products, I lack capital, and I need funding as it is impossible for me to invest a huge amount all myself. Starting from land to minor things like water pumps, I require a huge amount of funding. I need kind people like you to fund my project, and help in fulfilling my dream for my country and myself. So that my dream can inspire many others like me.
Biotechnology FirmThe economy of Bangladesh is primarily dependent on agriculture. About 84 percent of the total population live in rural areas and are directly or indirectly engaged in a wide range of agricultural activities. Agriculture contributes about 32 percent to the country's GDP, about 23 percent of which is contributed by the crop sector alone. About 63 percent of the labor forces are employed in agriculture with about 57 percent being employed in the crop 1.1 sectors. The scope of modem agriculture has been widened significantly in Bangladesh, Although agriculture used to be originally defined as the cultivation of land for producing crops only, nowadays, any applied activity through proper utilization of natural resources which relates to the production, development, preservation, processing, marketing, and extension of not only crops but also other agricultural commodities such as fish, meat, eggs, forest products, etc. is universally accepted within the purview of agriculture. In consideration of the already vast agricultural industry and future scope in Bangladesh, I want to establish a hydroponic Greenhouse or Biotechnology Firm in my country Bangladesh. Hydroponics is a production method where the plants are grown in a nutrient solution rather than in soil. The greenhouse and its environmental control system are the same whether plants are grown conventionally or with hydroponic. The greenhouse needs to be suitable for production with adequate heat and ventilation and the ability to manage both, and clean glazing for maximum light. The difference between conventional production and growing hydroponically is the support system for growing plants and the method of supplying water and nutrient. In simple words,it means just growing crops in water. Plants and vegetables are placed in a growing medium such as clay pellets, rock wool, recycled foam, foam, sawdust, gravel, or coconut fiber, and then, fed a feeder or nutrient to make them grow. Hydroponic Greenhouse has a lot of benefits for the society, up to 90% more efficient use of water, production increases 3 to 10 times in the same amount of space, many crops can be produced twice as fast in a well managed hydroponic system, decreasing the time between harvest and consumption increases the nutritional value of the end product, Indoor farming in a climate-controlled environment means farms can exist in places where weather and soil conditions are not favorable for traditional food production, No chemical weed or pest control products are needed when operating a hydroponic system. For a small country like Bangladesh, it will be a revolution in the agricultural sector, as there is not enough space in Bangladesh, and people in Bangladesh will get fresh food which is rare in my country. Bangladesh is a county of more than 160 million people, so generally, there is a huge demand for agricultural products all year round. But Bangladesh is going through a phase where farming is becoming unsustainable due to falling yields, increasing costs, along with water scarcity and soil degradation, which has impacted the price of day to day used agricultural products. Moreover due to the Covid -19 pandemic food prices have tripled in the last 6 months, mainly because of inadequate supply, which left many poor people hungry, as they can’t afford to pay high prices for regular food products. Hydroponic Greenhouse is still quite unknown in Bangladesh, there are very less firms operating farming in Hydroponic Greenhouses, I plan to start Hydroponic Greenhouse in my village, I have been engaged in farming way earlier, my family used to do farming, we have small lands where we grow different types of vegetables and crops traditionally.
Now I want to use my experience and skill to start a Hydroponic Greenhouse Firm, I have all the required skills, knowledge, and experience in farming, but the main thing I lack is an investment. As I already have expertise in the agricultural sector, I need the investment of money so that I can convert my agricultural business into a more advanced hydroponic Greenhouse Agricultural firm. Hydroponic growing is a capital intensive enterprise, and often a barrier to commercial producers. Having adequate start-up capital is important before I begin. I need to buy all the pumps, piping, heaters, fans, and nutrients to get the system up and running. This is often a considerable expense compared with field production. Attention to detail in management is essential. In a hydroponic system, the plant is entirely dependent on what is provided by the grower. System failure can be catastrophic for a crop, and constant checking and monitoring is essential. To complete all these major and other minor setup huge amounts of money is needed, I cant fund this ambitious project all by myself. I need investors like you to help me with my project, It is one of its kind in my country, due to the high demand for agricultural products, my business idea will be a highly profitable one. But the initial cost of this start-up is a big barrier for me. I want your help with my dream project. Moreover, our government’s vision 2021 of Digital Bangladesh, will be a great boost for us. The use of technology in every sector is always encouraged by our government, so if we can start our Hydroponic Greenhouse work well, it will be easy for us to get a government grant and subsidy to grow our business even more. All these can be achieved if you and I work together. I need investment and I hope you liked my idea and project, I assure you all the things will be managed by me properly, as I already got the knowledge and expertise, even our government is friendly for new innovative startups. Now I also need capital. I hope you like my project and will be interested to invest in my project, as this project will not only be profitable for me but a revolution in the agricultural sector in my country, will lead to providing food to many poor people at a low price.
THANKS A LOT
