Celebrated KISAN DIWAS at Vikram Farm, Nahuli on 23rd December 2016
23rd December is the birth anniversary of India’s 5th Prime Minister, Mr. Chaudhary Charan Singh and it is celebrated as “KISAN DIWAS” all over India. For UPL Farmer is first in all initiative and hence we decided to celebrate the farmers day (KISAN DIWAS) to extend our thanks to farmers for giving us food.
A famous quote on farmer…
“Once in our life we need Doctor, a Lawyer, a Politician and a Preacher but every day, three times a day we need Farmer”
So it’s our and everyone’s duty and responsibility to say thanks to farmer.
How UPL Pragati team Celebrated KISAN DIWAS
We invited 45 farmers from three location namely Vapi, Ahwa and Ankleshwar to Vikram Farm, Nahuli. We organized training cum thanks programme for them.
In first session we briefed them about Vikram Farm and all crop specific information. session included best management and modern practices of agriculture. Effective management of water, labour and Agri inputs.
In second session, Mr. Tripathi and Mr. Pankaj from Vikram farm conducted field visit for our guest farmers. This was more practical understanding and exposure for innovative practices in agriculture. It was full of practical knowledge/experience sharing for farmers. Each and every query or questions of the farmers was answered on field itself.
The third session was farmers opportunity to give feedback on their learning from UPL Pragati team and their visit to Vikram Farm. 7-8 farmers who had visited Vikram farm earlier shared their experience with other farmers which they implemented in their own farm. Some of them stated Paddy cultivation through SRI method, some told about Sugar Cane cultivation, some spoke about drip irrigation and its benefit. The mutual exchange of knowledge and experience to each other was a wonderful excercise.
Finally we concluded the whole programme by extending our thanks to farmers and offer them small token of appreciation for all the hard work they put in to feed INDIA.
