I am Gorkhdeep, and like my father I want to take up farming as a full time profession. I am in 12th class and besides farming, I also want to start a business. Besides me, there are four more members in our family, my grandparents and my parents. My grandfather was a full time farmer and now my dad is following his footsteps. I too want to follow my dad’s footsteps in near future. My parents could not study after tenth class, hence I first want to complete my education and then join the farming.
Our family owns 40 acres of land and we follow the conventional crop cycle of wheat and paddy. We also have 3 buffalos and for them we cultivate the fodder in one acre of land. In todays time, you cannot survive without the use of modern agricultural implements and hence we have invested in these equipment. Today we have two tractors, 2 trollies, ripper and leveler. We use non organic pesticides and fertilizers but we do use animal dung as organic fertilizer in our fields. We also engage a Combine for harvesting the crops along with manpower needed to get the job done.
