Story                      :

I am currently farming on 14 acres of land and I am following the messages from CCAFS. This year I have applied 3 bags of fertilizers per acre after listening to the messages this year whereas in the previous year I applied 4 bags of fertilizers per acre of land. One bag of fertilizer costs me rupees 300 and hence I could save approximately rupees 4500 in just reducing the fertilizers. Talking about my paddy crop, the messages that told how to control the pests like tella in the field was very helpful. I followed what the messages said and the problem of tella was solved. This year the quantity of my paddy crop was 17 quintals which is more than that of previous year. So, I could earn rupees 100000 more this year which I could get because of the messages that I used to listen plus some of the experience that I had.
