Nalbari farmer sets example of self-reliance

By RAMEN KALITA

NALBARI, Dec 9 - A progressive farmer of Panigaon village in Nalbari district has set an example of becoming self-reliant through modern agriculture farming.

Apart from agriculture, the farmer, Sarbeswar Baishya, also has a dairy farm and a fishery unit, through which he has established an integrated farming.

�We produce around 200 quintals of paddy annually. Moreover, in view of the surging demand for vegetables, our farm cultivates brinjals, cabbages, cauliflowers, pumpkins, tomatoes and potatoes, which have attracted a sizeable number of consumers,� said the farmer, smugly.

He said youths ought to engage themselves in modern agriculture to become self-reliant. �As agriculture is the backbone of our economy, we must promote modern agriculture in a bid to increase outputs,� he opined.

�Success does come overnight, it requires a lot of patience and perseverance. Now, I can run my family smoothly without any hindrance. This is all due to hard work put in by members of my entire family,� he reiterated.

Baishya is also grateful to the Nalbari Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) for extending all technical support in materializing his plans. �In the last several years, the KVK helped me a lot to march forward. We need to follow modern techniques in order to boost crop yield. I have also set up a nursery to produce quality seeds,� the farmer said.

�Instead of searching for government jobs, our youths should focus on agriculture and dairy farming to become self-reliant,� he said. Asked about his future plans, Baishya revealed that he would continue to focus on agriculture.
