A Day in my Life as a Farmer!
By J.S. Navina.
Now, I am going to share my one-day experience as farmer. I
woke up at 4:30 am. The day starts at the farm. Rearing domestic
animals are very difficult task. Then Iwent to the field to grow crops
there are many difficulties in growing crops. I checked the fertility of
the soil it was very low so I bought some fertilizersandspread on the
soil.Next I went on sowing the field.This brings me to a total of ten
thousand rupees.Then I showed the seeds. After a few days it started
to grow but it also met with heavy flood. After a few months’y village
met with a severe drought. I didn’t have even single drop of water to
grow my crops, but on defeating all these conditions my crops grown.
At the time of harvesting the sad thing to say is that my crops were
damaged by the insects. Insects are the great threat. They rated the leaves and burrowedthe holes in stems, fruits and roots of mycrops. Not only insects damaged my crops even rats and mice. They ate
seeds, roots, whole young plants, fruits.
Birds too, are an issue particularly pigeons. So my heart was
broken, but I got help from the “safe guard peatscontrol”. After
these all struggles I only got a little profit. This is very critical situation
to me that I didn’t have enough money to eat and I also need money
For next cultivation.
In my leisure periods I usually talk to others about yields,
souls, weather, machinery, farm programs and more –just to get
advice on what others in my area are doing. Our fixed image on
farmers is that farmers are uneducated but farmers are very smart
guys. I will try to understand the techniques and new machines that
came in the markets which make the irrigation easier.
I will be very happy when I have a sufficient money to run me
household without the need to take debts. The day when rains do not
torment me and when the harvest is good is what makes me happy.
Nowadays many farmers met with a great loss and went on suicide.
This makes me very sad as a farmer. To reduce this farmers suicide
attempt government have to give a free medical care to the farmers,
construct at least small, medium houses for the farmers, provide
quality urea and fertilizers at government sun shops and so on. All
these and many nor implemented properly will make me and other
