Stevia growing in Indonesia

Asked November 19, 2013, 9:18 PM EST

I was hoping you could please provide me with some contact information for someone who has or knows about stevia tissue culture plantations. We are looking for an expert that we could bring over to Indonesia and help us start and teach us about how to grow and process stevia. We understand that this will be a lengthy process of trial and error at first.

I am living in Bali, and my mother has 300 hectares (23 hectares of greenhouses) available in Lombok, and we are interested in starting a stevia plantation.

If you could please let me know who would be best to contact, it would be greatly appreciated.
