Radheshyam Purokait owns 5 Bigha farming land where he primarily grows ‘Amon’ rice variety. Initially he had to struggle very much as he was facing poor yield and chemical fertilizers were of no help. He approached Mukti seeking help, where he was introduced to organic fertilizers, in 2010. Since then his crop yield have increased and he is able to successfully sustain his family.
With the help of other NGO’s MUKTI regularly conducts training organic farming techniques. This is MUKTI’s aim to build a strong knowledge-base on organic farming and sustainable agriculture techniques among needy farmers of India. You can also be part of that by sponsoring such training.
