Rajendra Pathare, a young farmer from Ralegansiddhi village, has successfully cultivated apples on a barren piece of land thereby squashing preconceived notions of apple being suitable only for regions with cold climate.

They will definitely benefit with the availability of another fruit crop which is popular among consumers.
