Organic Farming

Farming is as successful as any other business; three young people from Maharajganj, Uttar Pradesh have proved it right.

In the first season, they earned seven times more in comparison to the traditional farming. They earned a profit of Rs. 10, 000, 00 and are also providing employment to more than two dozens of unemployed people. 

At present, many fruits and vegetables grown by them are reaching Banaras, Jaunpur, Prayagraj and some other cities.

He is MBA degree holder, he is doing organic farming of fruits and vegetables with his two friends Varun Shahi and Aditya Shahi in fire acres of land.

Aditya Pratap Singh said that in the last season, vegetables and fruits started growing within 6 months. With the input of Rs. 1.2 Lakh, they generated the revenue of 12 lakhs. And this has increased the enthusiasm and also increased the hopes of fulfilling dreams. 

Drip Irrigation System

They are also getting the benefits of government schemes, and are cultivating with drip irrigation method. Earlier, they used to earn Rs. 30,000 in an acre of land, but now income is more than the double.
