Despite the focus on industrialization, agriculture remains a dominant sector of the Indian economy both in terms of contribution to gross domestic product (GDP) as well as a source of employment to millions across the country.
Agriculture plays a vital role in the Indian economy. Over 70 per cent of the rural households depend on agriculture as their principal means of livelihood. Agriculture, along with fisheries and forestry, accounts for one-third of the nation’s GDP and is its single largest contributor.
Even being the primary occupations of the rural population in India, farmers practising agriculture themselves don't make huge profits in-spite of providing subsidy and encouragement grants from the government, further more we see news headlines outlining farmers suicidal attempts and worse.
There are many reasons for this, according to the recent survey conducted, farmers admitted facing problems in seeding since most of the farmers do it manually by employing locals. While this increases the employment in the region it creates a huge supply and demand imbalance since seeding of crops in villages start at the same time, resulting in unbalanced human resource which increases the charges to hire the locals, subsequently all farmers can't do seeding in proper time which might force them to wait until next rain.
Introducing machinery in farming brings drastic change in economy and yield, unfortunately this hasn't still become a main stream practice in India.
Market provides seeding machine for particular purpose and those can't be used with other crops.We had invested ourselves in researching for the last 6 month to come up with a solution.
Following the best practices to over come the problem we are proud to introduce a multi-purpose seeding machine, using which machine farmer can do seeding in proper timing and reduce the seeding cost to a fraction.
our aim is to provide this machine to poor farmers and encourage them to do farming, while curbing down the suicidal cases to nil.
This multi-purpose seeding machine can be used for various crop seeding like raagi seeding, maize seeding etc.
and this can be retro-fitted for a tractor reducing the initial investment.
example: 4-5 people with two animal can do seeding for 2-3 acre/day but in case if use tractor fitted with Multi Purpose Seeding Machine then 10-12 acres can be seeded in one day with just 2 people.
we are going to decrease the seeding time and reduce seeding cost for farmer to support their economy.
The successful completion of this campaign would support 10 farmers with multi crop seeder.
