Hi Guys, i am Rafiq Yusuf,i am based in bombay.Business was my earlier profession,now turning 360 degrees towards agri/horticulture.
Was fortunate to have ancestral mango farms in rajapur of ratnagiri dist.Also have lot of ancestral lands,lying waste for decades.Trying to put them to productive use.
Very much love the process of creation,thats what farming is.
Over the years have acquired some knowledge about mango cultivation,will be happy to help prospective mango maniacs in anway required.
On my farms i have alfonso,dasheri,langda,ratna kesar,pairi,raiwal,rajapuri, mango trees,cashew nut,jackfruit trees.
In the last few years have added sour lime,sitafal,chikoo,pineapple,tamarind,coconut,banana red,green,yellow,fig,pomegranate,mousami,orange,cinnamon,pepper.
Not yet fully satisfied,looking for newer varieties of fruit and flower plants.
Love flowers of the fragrant kind.
I am of the opinion that if you have land,you are surely God’s favourite.
Also strongly feel that our lands should suffice for all our needs.
Slowly trying to shift focus to organic farming.
Would love to help and interact with fellow forum members in learning,sharing,experiences,views and info on agri/horti topics.
The process of learning never stops.
Happy Ploughing,happy Tilling…Its very fulfilling
