I am a software engineer, working in company in hyderabad.I have 15 acers of land, 110 KM from Hyderabad. currently rain fed crops are cultivated in 8 acers by a local farmer on lease. Not much chemicals are used on the field.
Me and my brother (who is also a software engineer) are interested in agriculture, so we started working on the farm (On weekends). Got 4 more acers cleaned by JCP. Got the bore well drilled, by god’s grace we were successful (after one failed bore) to get water of 3 inches, we are in the process of getting the bore and motor getting fitted.
After a lot of research on polyhouse/greenhouse/ZBNF/Organic farming. We are convinced that ZBNF is the way a head.
We are planning to attend Subhash Palekars work shop on 19th November 2014 at Mysore.
We are very impressed by the work of Subramanian.G.R and his farm visit thread. Can any one tell us if the same is being done around Hyderabad. If not it will be a good idea to start visiting ZBNF followers and publish the findings in this forum.
