By ICC TEAM - Jul 12, 2017 3:30 PM

Myself Pranay Govardhan Waghmare,staying at Rale Village, Dist; Yavatmal , (MH). I stay in a village whosepopulation is about 30000 and nearly 1500 families belong to the farming community.I am 28 years farmer and did my MBA-Marketing. After my educational carrier Ihad decided to help my father and to do the traditional farming in a betterway. I am having 28 acres of land, in which we use 22 acres of land for growingcotton, 4 acres of land for growing soyabean and on balance 2 acres other croplike tur.

Last year Cotton was  the maincrop grown and the varieties used were Gnagakaveri. Although the conditionswere not that suitable for cotton crop but still I could get a yield of 12 to13-q/acre. Other farmers obtained less yield due to local seed varieties usedby them. This year also I will be using Gnagakaveri and I am planning to havedistance of 3.00ft x 1.00ft.In the month of June end sowing of seeds iscompleted on 22 acres of land. For 22 acres of land 1100kg of D.A.P. costing Rs24640/-,1100kg of Urea costing Rs.7700/-,220kg of Magnesium sulphate Rs.4000/-and1100kg of 10:26:26 costing Rs.24200 was used. Seed packets of Rs 700/750, 40/44packets used in 22 acres land. Method of drip irrigationwas used and as per the sources there is enough water in tube well for sowingprocess. Plucking charges is of around Rs 10/12 per kg, total costing formfarming in 1acre is Aprox Rs 15000/-per acre.

Price expectation:
 

*IF RAINS ARE THERE ON TIME AND NO DAMAGE TO CROPWITH BETTER YIELD, FARMERS ARE EXPECTING PRICES OF RS 4500/- TO 5000/- PER QTLSAME AS LAST YEAR.

 

*IF THE RAINS ARE DELAYED AND YIELD IS LESS FARMERSARE EXPECTING RS. 5500/- TO 6000/- AND ABOVE DURING PERIOD OF OCT / NOV &DEC.
