[/quote] Dear Chandra, Why can’t consider the photos already posted in different posts? Those photos are taken at appropriate time when crops was in its peak stage, crops cannot give results as per our requirement, but we need to capture the crops photos as on when they given results.

Hi Swamy,

It is fine to post those again. Pick your best and post on this topic - since this will be a poll, all entries should be right here. Don’t forget to email the full resolution pics too.
There is no restriction when they were taken.

Hi
Here are few pics from my farm, since 2010 till 2012.

  1. Cabbage with intercropping of mustard and marigold to control pests and it worked just fine.
  2. Colored capsicum in our greenhouse, we ended up selling green capsicum itself as the market rate was high at that time.
  3. Marigold - My first crop after shifting to our farm. Bumper crop, lose rates.
  4. Musk Melon - Again, bumper and beautiful crop, wrong timing. It rained on the day before harvest and market refused to take my musk melon and water melon. We and our workers ended up having it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Loads of fun. Our cows also had the time of their life eating these fruits and they also gave us more milk to thank us. :slight_smile:

Thanks
Nikhil








Dear Nikhil,

Are you telling, you did not spray any pesticides to Cabbage? If this true Kudos to you and your team.

The farm is in Nalgonda district of AP.

Hope you enjoy them.

Hi?
Please find few photos of my farm. Photos details available in GPS info of photo properties.
Farm production is through PANCHA THARANGINI/5 layer/story  method.
We have not done anything to tamarind except getting yield from it & remaining photos themselves can inform about the the farm production.








  1. Picture showing west coast with all types of farming, paddy, areca/coconut and forest.  You would also see a river flowing at the extreme right.
  2. Traditional way of ploughing
  3. Farmer climbing the tree to harvest areaca, you will see the traditional tools tied to his waist.
  4. Starting Teak plantation (+ other wild trees )







Awesome pictures of Malenadu. Every time these pictures come along, it inspires to get the bags packing and moving towards THAT THE life. Hegdegg pictures are awesome, bit bigger ones would have done more justice.

Did you try clicking the pictures now? should be fairly good size.

Voting is now open! Details are in the first post.

Congratulations hegdegg and niksnarayana for the best pics!

Thanks to everyone who participated and voted - it is some good fun to see some nice farm pics. It is also quite pleasing to see some participating members actually vote for others’ pics than their own!

Just don’t forget to keep an eye for good farm photo opportunities so you can post your entry in future FFF contests.

Thanks a lot Chandra all other who voted.

Congratulations niksnarayana.
