Farmer Success Story of Babita Rawat
Babita Rawat says that often in our fields vegetable was also produced earlier, we used to use as much as we needed at home and the rest would take bots here and there. But when I saw in the market that the vegetable which we take bot is free, and do not understand its importance, for its business people are sitting in the market opening the shop. At the same time, it was determined to do business in vegetable production by changing the vegetable according to the need with the traditional method.
Babita’s success began here
In the year 2016, the State Bank of India Rural Self Employment Training Institutes (RSETIs) conducted a 10-day workshop on mushroom training in the village, in which all agricultural officers and garden officers (garden officers) Garden officer) had also come, under which training was given for Mushroom production. I was doing BA during that time, thought to do this training with studying, after that, I started mushroom work in one of my rooms. Slowly. Mushrooms started getting success.
Babita initially faced some problems
In Sagwadi in the village, we used to grow a little vegetable, we used to do traditional farming in other fields, but there was less and hard work in it. In 2018, Polyhouse was built and started vegetable production. In 2018, she also completed an MA from Hindi. Babita says that when I started this work, initially there was trouble, the biggest challenge was to solve it. In my family, agriculture and animal husbandry work is being done by ancestors. Being a girl, it was a bit awkward to solve, but I was determined to do something different and I started to solve the problem with the oxen in my own house. Started growing all season vegetables with mushrooms which are organic.
