Maybe should see the CNN Story first.
We plan to bring a total of 20,000 acres under cultivation in the near future,・said Sunil Mittal, Bharti Enterprises, chairman.
FieldFresh, which began operations two years ago, already has 4,000 acres of farm land on lease in Punjab. It is looking at cultivation in Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Uttaranchal in the next couple of years.
To overcome the lack of infrastructure for its exports, FieldFresh is looking to tie up with charter companies from Singapore. This tie-up is expected to operational by next calendar year. There will be 3-4 flights every week with one stop in eastern Europe and the second in western Europe. The aircraft top be used will be DC10痴 and ultimately 747 jumbos.
