N.B The hydroponics unit will be captive unit meant for the supply of green fodder to the farmer’s cattle only and
not for sale in the market. Milk production increases by about 10 to 20% (150 to 165 liters per lactation) when fed green fodder as compared to straws and dry fodder, expenditure on concentrates also comes down and the health of the cow also improves resulting in saving on veterinary care. These benefits have not been monetized in the above economics.
