Chia FAQs
Q1) What is the best soil to grow chia in?

Chia grows in almost any soil. Its a hardy plant that can do well just about anywhere, as long as there is some little water to get the seeds sprouting. However, use organic manure to get the best produce.

Q2) Does it require heavy rainfall?

No. Chia requires very little water to grow. This is why it is able to survive even in some relatively harsh conditions.

Q3) How long does it take to mature for harvesting?

It takes 3-4 months to mature for harvesting. In cold areas, it matures a little slower than in warm areas, hence the range.

Q4) Is there a market for the seeds?

Yes. The market is quite ripe at the moment. As more people get to learn about the health benefits of consuming chia, you can expect the market to grow even more. However, we always remain realistic; if more people continue venturing in to growing chia, the market will fade off a bit.

Q5) Do you buy the seeds from farmers?

Yes we do buy from our registered members. Sometime, when our stocks are low, we also source for the seeds from those farmers who bought seeds from us but are not registered members, who also adhered to our advise on how to grow the plants organically.

Q6) How much yield can I get from an acre of chia farm?

You will get up to 350kgs of chia in an acre. However, we have witnessed people who have harvested as low as 70kg per acre due to poor harvest timing.
