Are you willing to invest in agriculture in 2013? Then you should know that the timing couldn’t be better! If you own land in the rural area and you want to make impressive profits this year, then consider the following eco-friendly agricultural business ideas, recommended by experts.

Here are three of the most profitable agricultural business ideas for 2013:

1. Eco-friendly medicinal plant cultivation

Medicinal plants are widely known for their abounding benefits. Herbal or alternative medicine has become increasingly popular in recent years, and the trend is on the rise.

Herbs and medicinal plants are extremely beneficial to our health, and many people use them to enrich their meals. Herbs are also used for manufacturing natural beauty products and skin care products.

Here are some of the most popular herbs and medicinal plants you can consider cultivating in the rural area: aloe vera, St. John’s Wort, basil, wheatgrass, turmeric, peppermint, ginger, cinnamon, and mustard. 
2. Energy willow cultivation

Willow can be grown to produce bio-fuel. Farmers can expect a return on their investment starting with the second year of cultivation. The best part about energy willow is that you only need to plant it once every 25 to 30 years, which means increased profit in the long run.
3. Eco-friendly fruit and vegetable cultivation

Organic farming is the next big thing in agriculture, a practice that is sure to become more popular by the day. It is based on a set of eco-friendly practices, including crop rotation, soil fertility and pest control.

Organic farmers refrain from using any synthetic fertilizers or pesticides on their crops. Organic fruits and vegetables are more expensive, since they are healthier alternatives to traditional products, grown with pesticides and fertilizers.

You can choose one or more of the following crops: apples, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumber, strawberries, bell peppers, peaches, grapes, berries, cherries, or celery.
