There are many folks who have written about their desire to get into agriculture. It would be good to know how they have progressed so far and how many are 4 years, 3 years, 2 years and 1 year old, in farming. Also, how many have graduated to the next level by increasing their area under cultivation and how many are still struggling.
I am also one of those contemplating the steps required to get into farming. Like everybody else from a non-farming background, I have been following the path of reading ZBNF books, watching Youtube videos, enrolling myself into a few workshops and arming myself with some amount of theoretical knowledge and planning internships before the next phase of trying out experiments on a small piece of land.
Lot of people start solo and it is quite a daunting journey. It may be good to start with a few partners so that the cash burn is minimised and all the learnings are absorbed. At the end of a certain period, each of the partners may be ready to go their separate ways, after having learnt the tricks of the trade without burning too much cash.
