The thinking of “agriculture is a business” is the core concept of this project, where effective cost is vital component together with the return on investment. The culture of smart and efficient spending must be assimilated and practiced to ensure the success of the project
From many options and opportunities, the cultivation and supply of chili is chosen for the following factors;
Ready buyer with Supply and Purchase Agreement by the identified industry.
Buy Back Guarantee – Contract Farming Agreement
Higher and faster return on investment
Monthly income compare to project basis
Small land required
Known technology to produce high yield, prevention of diseases and cheap.
Focus on areas of expertise where extensive research & development was carried out on the seed to give superior quality with high immune system.
The supply of chili suitable for the manufacturing of chili sauce requires systematic approach which produces sustainable produce. These produce must meet all the requirement of quality as well as quantity.
Sustaining the produce is achieved through systematic planting technique which is called fertigation system. Meanwhile, to produce required quantity a system called contract farming involving participants is employed.
Objective of this project is to

Tujuan penanaman secara fertigasi ialah untuk mengelakkan tanaman daripada
dijangkiti oleh penyakit akar seperti penyakit Pythium, Fusarium dan penyakit
layu bakteria yang kebanyakannya adalah jenis-jenis penyakit bawaan tanah.
Penyakit lain yang dianggap merbahaya ialah penyakit hawar pucuk dan Antraknos
pada tanaman cili. Bagi membolehkan kaedah ini dilaksanakan, seseorang pengusaha
itu mestilah mempunyai rumah tanaman yang lebih dikenali sebagai Struktur Pelindung
