The messages that come about telling about the new technologies have been quite useful themselves. I've personally used the zero tillage technique in my fields and it has been really beneficial. The amount of wheat that I had to sow got reduced from the previous year and the wastage is very less. Also, the spacing between the plants is uniform and the right amount that should be which again is quite important factor to consider. I also used the technique computer ghodi (land laser leveler) which reduced the amount of water that has to be used to water the fields because of the uniform level of the fields. Talking about my paddy crop the monetary benefits that I achieved this year were quite high amounting to rupees 150000 to 200000 approximately.

According to me 'PRACTICE MAKES A MAN PERFECT' and combined them with the messages that tell that a potential disease can attack the crop are also quite useful as I can prepare the crop earlier for the attack and can avoid it. The output increased in terms of quantity as compared to the previous year. This year the output increased by 3 quintals approximately and getting a good government rate I got a profit of around rupees 15000. I have also listened to the messages regarding the new technology and also used computer ghodi (land laser leveler). This technology has numerous benefits like the amount of water that has to be used for the crop reduces drastically and also and contours or uneven land gets corrected and a uniform field is available for farming which is always wanted. So, the crop is uniformly spread and the output also increases. Also, the ploughing time reduces which is again a benefit that I receive using the technology.

My neighboring fields has suffered due to excess water in the field due to rains and also manual watering the fields, we have prevented that situation by being part of program. This has also led to better paddy crop yield this season and current production was 20 quintal as compared to last season which was around 16-17 quintal. The excess crop yield this season has added INR 20000 to my revenues, in which the information provided by the program has played by huge hand.

I'm farmer from Garhijattan village in Karnal District and cultivate wheat and paddy crop in 2 acre of land. I've been part of Climate SMART village program and have benefitted from the content based messages multicast by them on regular basis. This season I've followed the guidance provide by the program on the ways to fertilize the field and also on how and when to spray pesticides in the field to prevent crop from diseases. This have led to better crop yield this season and also reduced my fertilizer cost by around INR 150 per acre or 1/2 a bag per acre. The program keeps updating on the latest technology being used in farming and I'm considering applying Laser land leveler (computer godhi) before the next season starts as it levels the fields and water spread across the field evenly which will save us a lot of time and water.

I'm farmer from Garhijattan village in Karnal District and cultivate wheat and paddy crop in 12 acre of land. I've been part of Climate SMART village program and have benefitted from it. The weather information provided to us it very useful as we can schedule our activities accordingly. For instance we avoid spraying pesticides or herbicides onto the field or even watering the fields when we are warned by the program that it's going to rain today. We had brought around INR 5000 worth of herbicides to kill weeds (madusae) growing in the field and were going to spray it across the field. When we came about to know about forthcoming showers we rescheduled spraying the herbicides which otherwise would have washed away with the rain and same quantity of herbicide had to be bought again. In this I had saved around INR 2000 by being proactive and being in the program. The program helps us in many different aspects like this.

I applied fertilizers to my fields as per the suggestion given through CCFAF's voice messages. Also I have not had the need to irrigate the fields for almost a month now because of being informed well in time of the upcoming rain. This has resulted in saving water, time as well as the crop from getting damaged. I also benefited from the service during the rice cultivation as well.

The weather forecast provided by CCAFS is really useful. Because of the timely notification of upcoming rains, there has not been a need to irrigate the fields. In conjunction with our experience, we used the consultation given through these voice messages to apply fertilizers on our crop which resulted in reduction in the amount of urea used. Also our knowledge on new agricultural techniques has improved and we employed land laser leveller (computer ghodi) which benefited us.
