Welcome back to HuwsNursery. Today’s video is about saving money through growing high-value crops which are crops that cost a lot in the shop. This video will be focused on the easy high-value crops to grow and I will be using Swiss Chard as an example. I hope you enjoy this video and please expand this description box for more information…
Formula for working out the minimum you can save:
1) Find the cost of selected crop per Kilogram or Pound (For example £7.50kg / $3.40Ib)
2) How much a seed packet costs (£1.40 / $2)
3) Work out 40% of the seed count (200 x 0.4 = 80) – Estimated percentage which will grow and produce a crop
4) Find out average crop yield (250g / 9oz)
5) Multiply the average crop yield by how many plants have grown (250g x 80 = 20kg)
6) Finally multiply the total crop yield by how much it costs for the same unit of measurement (20kg x £7.50 = £150
