Stevia cultivation in India is a new. The plantation started 6-7 years before. We went through an article on medicinal plant. The article highlighted the benefit of the stevia. We stuck with crop and try to find out the information on stevia cultivation. Before 5-6 years the content on stevia was not available so much in context to India. We got some seed from one importer of the stevia seed from Brazil. We started the cultivation the results were as per the expectations. We approached some farmers for the stevia cultivation. Initially it was very hard to make them to cultivate stevia. We could able to fill the confidence in two three growers for the stevia cultivation. Those 2-3 growers were agree to cultivate the Stevia. They were happy to see the crop in the field. Since the crop was new so there was no one to assist us on the problems in the stevia cultivation. We harvested the crop. It was very tough for us to find the buyer. We got some contact and sold out the stevia. The selling part was very tough. No one knew, to should we sell it.
The problem is still with the farmers that to whom they should sell their produce. The market is not open as the general agriculture commodity. The demand is there in the market but no one knows where it is??
Slowly and slowly we involved more farmers we became confident toward the cultivation side. We could able to understand the package of practices of the stevia crop in the Indian conditions. We clearly made a small cultivation guideline on the stevia crop. Mean while we came in contact with some other person who were involved in the stevia cultivation. The govt also started to assist the stevia crop under medicinal crop plantation.
