Contract Farming

KIL is engaged in Contract farming which is defined as a system for the production and supply of agriculture/horticulture produce under forward contract between producers/suppliers and farmers. There is commitment of the producer/seller to provide an agriculture commodity of certain type at a time and in the quantity required by a known and committed buyer. Farmers are required to plant the contractors crop on his land and to harvest and deliver to the contractor a quantum of produce based upon anticipated yield and contracted acreage. This could be at pre-agreed price.


  • The farmer is contracted to plant the contractor's crop on his land
  • Harvest and deliver to the contractor, a quantum of produce, based upon anticipated yield and contracted acreage
  • This could be at a pre agreed price
  • Towards these ends, the contractor can supply the farmer with selected inputs

From the point of view of farmers, contract farming lead to improvements in income reducing some of the risk farmers' face from production and price fluctuations. From the point of view of purchasers, contract farming provides greater control over volume and quality consistency; to a certain extent, it can also lower certain transaction and production costs that purchasers face.

Helping the farmers maintain high quality control and consistency is very important. Anybody who knows the power of herbs will agree. Whether you use herbs in preparing food or medicine, you will be familiar with their potency. Herbs can be important to both health and food sectors, so having them in perfect condition is a good thing for not only farmers, but also, indirectly, for nutritionists, homeopaths, experts, physiotherapists, chefs and more. Contract farming could be the future for many farmers
