Impact of LIFE project @Banswara
Stopped Migration!
Mansing Damor a Poor farmer; 35 year old  is living in Amlipada village of Kushalgarh block of Banswara District of Rajasthan he is also a president of Damor farmers club of Amlipada village earlier one his condition was very bade and after taking Rabi crops he was migrate to Gujarat for doing work with family and come after 3 to 4 months. But now his condition has improved through vegetable cultivation. LIFE project field animator Ms. Premlata Damor in February month had gone to his home and talked about the preparation of verim-compost unit pit and organic input in the form of Amrit pani to promote to organic cultivation. Mansing said to her that this year also he will go to Gujarat because for the kharif season he hasn’t enough money. On hearing the same Premlata said that why he want to go to Gujarat considering his agriculture land near the riverside where he can do good vegetable cultivation in the summer season with low input cost and could earn better money from the same.  Also use of organic lost cost products like Amrit Pani would lead to improve the quality of his land, which in turn again value addition to the land and the profit from it.
After the interaction with Premlata and being the part of one training programme on organic cultivation Mansing have prepared two vermin-compost pits and purchased a water lifting motor pump through loan from the farmers club and started vegetable cultivation. Now Man Singh has not migrated to Gujarat and able to earn 500-600 per day as profit by selling the vegetable to the nearest market of Kushalgarh block. He sails vegetables such as ginger, gawar falli, lady finger etc and using only organic inputs.
