I was working in an MNC in Mumbai till June last year. Due to health constraints (a kidney transplant in 1989 & brain clot in 2006), it was becoming increasingly difficult for me to cope with the (mental & physical) stress of professional life in Mumbai. I therefore resigned & returned to my home town mangalore, Karnataka.
Having had time to evaluate my priorities for the past 9 months & think what I would like to do with my life, I arrived at the decision that i want to become an agriculturist. Though I do not have a formal background pertaining to this field, but I'm sure that I would be able to garner the right assistance & support to become a successful farmer. With farmers increasingly moving to blue collar jobs, who would grow the food tomorrow to be put on our tables... & at what price would we get these scarce resources.
Having explained the background of my problem, let me share my actual concerns
Neither me nor my parents are agriculturists. What is the procedure I need to follow so that I may purchase agricultural land & take up farming?
What (kind of) support can I get & from where, for me to succeed in my venture?
I would appreciate advice / guidance on this matter..
