At present most of the people are turning to agriculture. People are trying their hand in agriculture after leaving their jobs and are getting success in this too. Ajay Ratan, a resident of Himachal Pradesh, is one such farmer who, after working as an assistant engineer for 10 years, came to the village and started farming. He started farming like a common farmer. But with the cost of farming increasing, he innovated and tried to introduce an affordable and sustainable farming modus for the farmers. For this, Ajay became an inspiration to the people by adopting the ‘Subhash Palekar Prakritika Khati’ method and reducing the cost of agriculture to zero.
Who is this clever farmer?
Gujarat is an agricultural state, and more than half of the people in Gujarat seem to be engaged in agriculture. While there are some farmers in Gujarat who are involved in their father’s grandfather’s business even though they are educated, even though they are graduates. And he has achieved so much success in agriculture due to his bookish knowledge and his inherited skills.
And keeping all this in mind, now in the face of unemployment, today’s youth are involved in their grandfather’s business and farming without any hope of employment. And they have achieved success in that too.
Today we are going to talk about a young farmer from India who earns 25 lakh rupees by planting 25 bigha land of his farm at a cost of 3000 rupees. So the name of the one we are talking about today is Ratan. Today he is a resident of Himachal Pradesh and comes from a farming family.
Ajay Ratan, a resident of Himachal Pradesh, has also worked as an assistant engineer for 10 years. And suddenly he came home tired of slavery and became an inspiration to people by adopting the ‘Subhash Palekar Natural Farming’ method and reducing the cost of farming to zero.
What is their income status?
Natural farming has changed the picture – After learning natural farming, Ajay is cultivating 25 bighas according to this method. Seeing this successful model, other farmers in the area have also joined them. Ajay is a master trainer and has so far made thousands of farmers aware of natural farming methods. Ajay Ratna has also been honored with the ‘Krishi Ananya’ award in the year 2019 for introducing a successful model of natural farming.
How did he get success?
After quitting his job, Ajay got the support of his father and family. The most essential for the natural farming system is the native breed cow, which they did not have. That is why he took native cows from his family and now by buying his own cows, he not only prepared inputs for organic farming, but also made them available to farmers coming from far and wide.
More profit with less cost – Ajay earns more than 5 lakh rupees every year and his expenses are only 2 to 3 thousand rupees. According to the Himachal Pradesh Agriculture Department, they state that there is no need to bring any goods from the market regarding the natural Keti method. All the resources that are used in agriculture are found around the house, which reduces the cost of agriculture. He said that human health as well as soil health is continuously improving with this farming method.
What does Ajay plant?
They are cultivating sugarcane, wheat, peas, soybean, mung bean, turmeric, tomato, chillies etc. In chemical farming the cost comes to Rs 30,000 and the earnings come to Rs 45,00. But in organic farming the cost has come down to Rs 3,000 and the profit has been over Rs 5 lakh.
