Chaudhary Veerpal Singh
After completing BSc Agriculture from DAV College, Punjab University- Chandigarh, MrVeerpal Singh returned to implement his leanings in Agriculture on Farm in the 1960s. The farmland purchased by Late Chaudhary Umrao Singh was evolved by son Veerpal Singh -marking the entry of the second generation in farming. He has developed deep insights into agriculture through his dedicated and focused work for more than four decades now.
He was also the first person in the village to adopt poplar based agroforestry in 1987 in association with WIMCO Seedlings. He has been a quick adopter of sustainable agricultural practices that not only contribute positively to the environment but also help improve farmers’ livelihoods. He takes best yields of crops – wheat, paddy and sugarcane that he grows on the farm.
He is actively involved in farming and many farmers of the region come to learn farming practices from him to take optimal yields of crops in a cost-effective way.
She is actively involved in organic farming since 2000. She grows paddy, wheat, black gram, turmeric, corn, flaxseed, arhar dal by using biological inputs. In vegetables and fruits, she grows bottle guard, bitter gourd, brinjal, potatoes, lady finger, awla, mangoes, litchi, papaya, black plums, banana, and pear. The soil fertility is enhanced using compost, green manure, and vermiculture.
She practices zero tillage in farming which allows direct sowing of the crop into the residue of the previous crop on the soil surface which saves irrigation water, labor costs and increases soil organic matter. Zero Tillage is both economically and environmentally beneficial.
Extensive use of neem leaves and nimboli is made to enhance soil fertility and as pest repellent. Only certified biological inputs are used in soil. The soil has the high population of earthworms owing to no use of chemicals and practice of vermiculture. She is bringing innovative practices and aims to make organic farming efficient, less costly and sustainable. Her work on Organic farming is certified by UPSOCA.
