Women soaring to new heights by taking up organic farming
Lucknow: After making their presence felt in male-dominant jobs like police, army and games, women have now given their male counterparts a tough competition by taking up agriculture as their profession.
Women at the Dhanpatganj in Vikas Khand have skillfully mastered the art of developing ‘Vermicompost’ and are helping others in organic and disease-free farming.
They use natural composite in their farming instead of Chemical composite. One Gayatri from Bichchora village not only made herself financial empowered but also inspired several women coming from nearby villages including Samarthpur, Peepar, Korvam, Patna, Ramapur etc.
These women have emerged as a bridge to organic farming. Women from the area are spreading awareness about chemical-free and disease-free farming by endorsing organic cultivation. This step taken up by them has earned them all praise by environmentalists and others.
Gayatri has been growing rice by following ‘System of Rice Intification’ (ISRI) and wheat by SWI method for 4-years. The specialty of their work is that they use nuclear seed and provide these seeds to economically poor families. They make composite from dung and debris, which is then used in the cultivation of flowers and vegetables.
This is the beginning of hope for the district.
