Pic3: Sesbania Sesban used as a wind barrier. This grows vigorously and provide a wind barrier and if planted on south and west boundaries they provide protection from heat waves. They are also nitrogen fixers, good fodder.






Hi Mr.KP, thanks for organizing this trip. It was an extremely enlightening one and in a small way changed several of my perceptions, not just about farming and agriculture but also about life.

Learnt a lot about building soil, inter-croping, multi-croping, managing farms, cover crop, mulching … and just about so many things that it is difficult to capture here.

Really look forward to more such farm visit … like in the words of Sri, good way to induce the ‘fire’!  :smiley:

Mr. KP, do let us know when we can do the next trip … the more farms we visit the better our understanding of various ways there are to know.
