Ram Saran Verma, Farmer who is changing destiny of others – Inspirational Farmer II

Ram Verma

Ram Saran Verma, 48, from Daulatpur village of Uttar Pradesh’s Barabanki district, who devised his own hybrid and tissue culture technique to increase crop yields by as much as 300 per cent and chose to share his secret for free; he has imparted his techniques to over 10,000 farmers not just from his own state but from as far as Gujarat and West Bengal.

The three-fold mantra of this school dropout is technology, quality and crop rotation. Verma has been rotating five crops over the last two years, and it’s this that has helped him stave off any slowdown in a single crop. “Once you are growing five different crops, the ups and downs are automatically taken care of. For instance, if the price of banana went down, that of potato shot up; likewise, the high yield of tomato sufficed to meet the down swing in its price,” he explains.

Mr. Verma runs “Hi-Tech Agriculture & Consultation” at Village Daulatapur, Uttar Pradesh and you can find more information at their website vermaagri.com
