Whenever we go to buy vegetables, we do not know if they are chemically treated. We bring them home and eat. Chemical free vegetables are also difficult to identify. Now many people are becoming aware about their health. To save themselves from eating chemically sprayed fruits and vegetables, they are turning to organic products. There are many such people who are growing fruits and vegetables by making a garden on the roof or in some corner of their house. This method is called kitchen gardening or terrace gardening. Today in this article we are going to tell you about a person who is working to take the campaign of ‘Clean food to healthy body’ to the people at their level. His name is Bansh Gopal Singh. Bansh Gopal hails from Kotha village in Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh.
Held the reins of farming since school days
Coming from a farming family, Bansh Gopal Singh had already decided that he would dedicate his life to agriculture and not a job. From his school days, he was inclined towards agriculture. He started producing potato seeds and selling them to the farmers. He also did his college studies from the agriculture sector. He took a master’s degree in Agriculture Science from Banaras Hindu University (BHU). When he started Plant Nursery in 1994, he did not have much money. Gradually, he raised money on his own and started a plant nursery on a small scale. He named this nursery as Jai Bharat Nursery.

Promoting organic farming

Then people had to be explained about organic products. Its benefits had to be communicated to people. In that era itself, he had more than 100 customers, whose house he used to deliver vegetables directly. Now the situation has changed. People have become aware about organic products. In such a situation, doing organic farming is beneficial for the farmers.
Bansh Gopal Singh explains – our aim is that people should eat only organic fruits and vegetables because this is the best option for a healthy life. Plant your own vegetables in your home and then eat. Keeping this in mind, he thought of opening a nursery.
Bansh Gopal Singh’s advice on opening a nursery
Giving advice to those who want to open a nursery, Bansh Gopal says that in the beginning, you can start a nursery plant from a small scale. There should be passion in a person. Nursery is a business that runs every season. That’s why you need to give it 365 days a year because even a little carelessness can harm you.
Bansh Gopal Singh says that many big metros of the country are in bad condition due to pollution and the population is also increasing. In the meantime, everyones need for food has to be fulfilled and nature has to be saved as well. In such a situation, farming in an organic way is not only effective in keeping the body healthy, but it also contributes to keeping the environment clean.
