Trellis farming catches the attention of traditional farmers

Oct 8, 2022

Parameshwar Gadua lives with his family in Dahimal village in Balangir district. Due to recurrent drought, he was not able to support his family. Learning about the benefit of trellis farming system, he decided to take up cultivation of Bitter gourd adopting trellis farming. He was amazed when he obtained an astonishing yield of 10 kg in the first harvest and thereafter every week and which increased to 50 – 60 kg yield per week subsequently. While he is keeping aside a small quantity for the household, he is selling the rest in the local market. So far, he has earned INR 24,000/- from sale of 800 kg of Bitter gourd. Parameshwar is today a satisfied farmer.
