Coriander/dhania farming is a great side hustle to make extra cash. It is an all year round, fast growing crop that takes about four to six weeks to mature. For an acre of land, a farmer will require 500 grams of seeds at a cost of Sh1000. From these, he/she will harvest between 600 to 800 kilograms of ready dhania and sell at an average price of Sh53 per kilogram,earning between Sh26,500 and Sh42,400 per harvest.
