The owner of the poly house answered the queries about irrigation technology, temperature, type of pesticides, insecticides and manures, amount of water required for the growth of the plants. When the students enquired about the difficulties while bringing up the crops and the benefits obtained, the owner spoke about bad weather and water shortage and the unstable market value.
