As we all know that India is an agricultural country, it is a country where about 70% people are farmers. We also understand well that since our country became independent, since then there has been a lot of talk about the rights of farmers, their issues and their problems in the laws ranging from government policies. It would not be wrong to say that farmers are the backbone of our country on which the basic necessities of all our lives rest. It is also true that even though the methods of farming have changed over time, the dependence of all of us on farmers still remains.
Where earlier traditional farming used to be in the country, now over time, the farmers of the country are also becoming modern and doing many new experiments in farming. The special thing about these experiments is that they are possible at very low prices and every farmer can execute them with the help of fixed methods. If needed, just think of something different. The experiment of one such farmer has been very successful recently, who has shown tomato and brinjal in wild plants. Many benefits are coming out of this experiment and if experts believe it may prove to be very revolutionary in the coming times. Mishrilal Rajput These farmers are from Khajurikala village in Bhopal city. Let us read about his technique in detail.
Mango vegetables from wild plants grown using grafting techniques
Often whenever we see wild plants, we start running away from them, afraid of them. And that’s why we often don’t see the hidden qualities in them. But Mishrilal has emerged as a farmer who grew vegetables like tomatoes, brinjals in these wild plants. The technique he used to do this is called ‘grafting technique’. The special feature of this technique is that organic manure is used prominently in this method, due to which its plants remain disease-free compared to common plants. Another good thing that is present in this technique is that the vegetable grown with this technique can easily withstand all kinds of weather.
Vegetables remain healthy even under adverse conditions
As we said, the vegetables grown by this technique can withstand all the conditions, even if there is less water or other adverse conditions, these plants do not have much effect. Raman Rao, the senior agricultural scientist at Central Agricultural Engineering Institute, Nabibagh, Bhopal, says that this experiment by Mishrilal is going to revolutionize vegetable production very soon. The root of the plants prepared with this technique remains the wild plant. Therefore they grow fast under less water and in adverse conditions. Their immunity is also higher than other common plants. The special thing is that with this technology, the benefit of higher yields can be achieved at a lower cost and multiple varieties can be produced simultaneously.
The process of grafting technique is complete
Mishrilal explains that the root of these plants is like a plant of wild species, on which tomato plant has been planted with grafting technique. The same experiment has been done with pepper plants. Mishrilal explains that in one tray wild plant and tomato, etc. are planted in another. The best time for grafting is when the wild plant grows to about 6 inches tall, and the tomato plant becomes 15 days old. A cut in the upper stem of the root of the wild plant is grafted to the respective vegetable plant. During this time, the plant is allowed to remain in shade for about 15 days. After this, he gets ready to plant in the open field. The mother plant is wild in this, while the vegetable plant is grafted in the stem.
There is freedom to plant many varieties in one plant, soil-borne diseases remain away
Mishrilal Rajput did this experiment with the help of agricultural scientists, at the end of which he was successful in using this technique. Through this technique, many varieties of vegetables can also be planted in the same plant. Mishrilal explains that by grafting at several places in a wild plant, it is possible to produce multiple varieties of vegetables from the same plant. The most important thing about this type of technology is that it is also effective in eliminating many diseases. Bhopal Singh, head of the Vegetable Section of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Delhi, states that outbreaks of soil-borne diseases have spread throughout the country, affecting the vegetable crop considerably. In such a situation, ‘grafting technology’ proves helpful. Farmer Mishrilal learned this technique in his institute and started it in the state, which is becoming a successful experiment in the whole country today.
We salute him for this experiment of Mishrilal and hope that by using this technique, there will be revolution in the field of agriculture in future and we will benefit everyone equally. This inspiration can be taken from the life of Mishrilal that no matter what you do, we must keep moving towards renewal and modernity through a constant revision in doing it, it will not only make your work easy for you. But it also benefits others.
While all the experiments are being done continuously by the scientists in the field of agriculture, it is a very good job for a farmer to come forward and contribute to it. We wish them all the best for this noble cause.
