  • First of all a big salute to

    First of all a big salute to the farmers. The article gives an idea about how much they are dedicated to the nature and agriculture. I am sure the post will be an eye opener for many who doesnÔÇÖt think about the environment and lead them to do something for the conservation of the nature. It tells the importance conserving our nature and the role farmers. Excellent work.

    Manish and Shashank, it is really a great initiative from you guys. this has the potential of bringing in a cultural change in the society and can usher a progressive mindset, similar to what AMUL and SEWA did in Gujarat. I too have similar aspirations and am thinking of doing my bit for society in my home state of Andhra Pradesh which too has many social problems like backwardness you can observe in many parts of India. I would like to share my thoughts with you and collaborate our knowledge for a better India in future. My email Id is: cvgkrishna@gmail.com. Request you to share your email Ids by sending an email to my personal email Id.

  • @ Prof. George - Thanks for

    @ Prof. George - Thanks for the good wishes. You are absolutely right sir. I would like to tell you sir, that we do not suggest/assist farmers for high value crops only. Crop combination is optimized in such a way so that overall risk is minimized and cycle of return from agriculture is reduced from 5-7 months (in case of only staples) to 80-90 days. We are also dealing with traditional crops like paddy, wheat, maize, mustard etc.

    Besides, FnF provides end to end solutions, which also includes post harvest interventions ( storage, primary processing and marketing).


    Warm regards,

  • CONGRATULATIONS TO FARM AND

    CONGRATULATIONS TO FARM AND FARMERS! However I will advice extreme caution on this high value crop route to leapfrog into 21st century. Bihar farmers will derive immense benefits from traditional staple food crops, provided decentralised storage facilities are created to derive value added benefits in the short term. Being a former non-resident Bihari indicates that risk-taking is not new to the farmers. Strategic growth path has its followers, don't they?
