Land abandoned after mining 14.12.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Land mining near Bhamod Gram Panchayat has led farmers to abandon their cultivation due to a shortage of water. This was revealed in a recent study conducted by 30 research scholars during a short course organised by Institute of Development Studies. According to the research, the land mining has led to depletion of the groundwater level and the water shortage in the village. As a result, small farmers have abandoned their cultivation as there was no money to bring water through the pipeline from faraway places. Hence, a major chunk of the cultivable and fertile land in the village is left uncultivated for a long time. Farmers reportedly remain idle throughout the year as there is no other alternative employment opportunities in the village. In the field survey, 74 per cent farmers reported that farming is not profitable for them as a source of livelihood. The next best alternative is to depend on cattle rearing as 43 per cent of farmers reported. However, cattle rearing is also not considered as a ...

Farmer turns successful nurseryman 11.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Anything can be achieved with a strong will and hard work," says Prakash, a proud nurseryman from Pakegowdana Palya near Hesaraghatta on the outskirts of Bengaluru. The quote stems from his experience of transformation from a humble farmer to a successful nursery owner with an annual turnover of three crore rupees. Fifteen years ago, just like his fellow vegetable growers, he used to raise seedlings on raised beds and transplant them after a month. Even slightly higher rainfall post transplanting would ruin the crop. Besides, this practice demanded higher seed rate and higher cost towards the seed. To avoid all these, he thought of producing seedlings in trays with cocopeat as the growing medium. The Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, which is located close to his land, came to his help through technical guidance. Prakash started with eight plastic trays using which he produced 800 seedlings. This effort resulted in quality seedlings, better crop and reduced crop period. Farmers in the ...
