Or they can offer in their office.
Start like this- Soil test lab can be started in two ways, in the first way lab can be opened by renting a shop. Apart from this, there is another laboratory which can be taken here and there. It is called MOBILE SOIL TESTING VAN in English.
(1) In the first method, the businessman will check the soil which will be sent or brought by someone in his laboratory and after that his report will be sent by email or printout to the customer. However, the second option can be quite beneficial compared to the first, so as far as investment in it is concerned, it is more than the first option.
(2) A wide range of services can be offered in soil testing laboratory. It can start this business from a small level and when it is fully confident, it can also increase this business on the same basis.
(3) Apart from agriculture, the business can also target food processing industries. Companies that manufacture seeds, bio fuel, fertilizers, agricultural machinery, etc. Such companies can also be serviced later by the businessman. Read also:
