Progressive Farmers Who Quit Their Jobs And Do Successful Farming

Progressive Farmers Who Quit their jobs and do successful farming

Sethpal Singh’s farm is no less than a laboratory, in his 15 hectares of land, he cultivates crops like paddy, wheat, sugarcane as well as vegetables like gourd, chilli, cabbage, chilli. Not only this, he also cultivates water chestnuts in the field, in the last few years he has also started the cultivation of lotus. Most of the farmers of western Uttar Pradesh cultivate sugarcane, but Sethpal Singh, a 55-year-old farmer from Nandifirozpur village in the Saharanpur district, has always been innovating, that is why he has been selected for the Padma Shri award.

Everyone’s dream is to study and do a good job, but this talented farmer proved it wrong. After graduating in agriculture in the year 1987, Sethpal thought it better to do farming instead of doing a job and got into farming. Sethpal Singh says about the beginning of farming, “Earlier, like other farmers, we used to cultivate only crops like sugarcane, wheat and paddy, but most of it was damaged. After that we got in touch with Krishi Vigyan Kendra. We came to know about agricultural diversification from the scientists there, from which the farmer can earn every day. Since then we also cultivate sugarcane, we also cultivate vegetables, along with this we also grow water chestnut in the field, we fish Along with this, they also do animal husbandry and mushroom cultivation.

Sethpal cultivates vegetables according to the season, cultivating many crops like gourd, pumpkin, bitter gourd in summer and cabbage, chilli, radish in winter. “We first prepare the nursery of vegetables in polybags, then plant them in the field. It is our endeavor that by the time one crop season is over, the second crop is ready,” says Sethpal.

He goes on to say, “Earlier, people used to make fun of me for what they are doing, see that there is a crop of sugarcane for one year, after that it goes to the mill, then the payment is not available. It becomes difficult to do so. In such a situation, something should be done so that every day’s expenses can be met.” Sethpal Singh does water chestnut in the field not in the pond, he tells about the beginning of farming,

“Once we were passing through a village near Saharanpur, where farmers were taking out water chestnut from the pond. We stopped there and inquired, after that we went to Krishi Vigyan Kendra and went to Dr. Saheb. He said That you too can cultivate it.Then in 1997 we started it.

They cultivate water chestnut in a completely flat field, its level and that of other fields are the same. Just raise the ridge of this field a little higher. We transplant water chestnut in the second week of June and fruits start coming by the last week of September. He further explains, “This crop runs from June to December, in December as the frost increases, this crop ends.

The use of pesticides is negligible in this. After testing the soil, whichever is lacking, apply accordingly. In other ponds which are cultivated in water chestnut, many times the dirty water of the whole village keeps coming in it. Because of that its quality is not good, whereas tubewell water is filled in our field, due to which better water chestnut grows. Not only this, it gets five-six rupees more rate than the water chestnut that grows in the market.

When water chestnut crop is found, after December we remove water from it but leave crop residue which becomes good organic manure. After this we cultivate vegetable crops,” he added. Along with Singhade, now Sethpal Singh has also started lotus cultivation, whose Kamal Nal i.e. lotus cucumber is sold as well as flowers. Sethpal They also do fish farming in the pond near their farm. “Because we do diversification farming, we have also started fish production, put three species of fish in four and a half feet of water, it includes Rohu, Katla and Nain follow. These three live in different surfaces and do not even harm each other fish. The most important thing is that there is no problem with groundwater from the pond, water keeps coming in our tube well every month.

Apart from this, Sethpal Singh is also motivating other farmers for this. In his 15 hectares of land, Sethpal Singh sows sugarcane in only five hectares of land. In the remaining 10 hectares, he is taking good profits by cultivating crops like horticulture, vegetables, and water chestnut. Krishi Vigyan Kendra was instrumental in reaching Sethpal’s journey here. IK Kushwaha, in charge and Principal Scientist of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Saharanpur, keeps visiting farmers’ fields and giving them new information. All the work goes on under his supervision, not only this, the entire team of scientists comes. Dr. IK Kushwaha, in charge of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, says, “Sethpal Singh is one of the farmers in our district who learns more than we tell. Sethpal earns a good profit from his own farm
