250 acre/100 hectare unit
We enter grower contracts with our equity investors to grow specific
lines of stevia. We do this after we have assessed the growing microclimate
and selected a line that we feel would be appropriate. We charge
for this consultation. Once we have selected lines for planting we
send in the micro propagation equipment, harvesting and production
equipment. We look forward at this time to establishing the whole
infrastructure, micro propagation through to retail marketing. On
a three -year crop rotation basis, we require 1000 acres. We also
supply rotation crop seed and equipment. In certain countries it
may be possible to manufacture most if not all the equipment necessary.
This not only allows for greater flexibility, but, gives a 30 to
300 fold movement of investment capital through the local economy.
Sharing the high technology involved creates new and exciting opportunities
for agriculture in your state or country.
