Sanchit Agarwal tells how Farmers can prepare the Market for Organic Farming

Why did the computer science graduate choose the path of organic farming? Giving markets to farmers in a unique way?


Organic Farming | Farmers have to spend a lot on the purchase of urea, pesticides, and weed-killer chemicals. It increases the cost of their cultivation. Not only this, the continuous use of chemicals reduces the fertility of the soil and also affects the health of those who use such crops.

There are some people who are slowly returning to their roots and opting for organic farming. They even motivate other farmers to do the same. One such youth is Sanchit Agarwal of Delhi. He discussed his journey in detail with Indu Kashyap, correspondent of Kisan of India.

Left Corporate Job and Adopted Organic Farming

Sanchit is a graduate of Computer Science and has a Master’s in AI. He has held high-profile jobs as a Data Scientist too. But only after a few years, he thought of leaving his profession completely and doing full-time farming. Today, he has become a successful entrepreneur. Along with this, other farmers are also being encouraged to do organic farming.

Organic Farming

Regarding choosing farming as a profession and leaving corporate, Sanchit says that during the study of a project related to farming, he had to see what is the rate of vegetables in the market and what kind of problems farmers face. During this study, he came to know that the farmer brings everything from outside like seeds, urea, insecticides, weedicide chemicals, etc., which increases the cost a lot. After this, when the farmer goes to sell the crop in the market. But, there is a change in the prices due to which he is not able to make a profit.

Sanchit further states that he then did a diploma course in organic certification in agriculture. It further fueled his interest in organic farming. He grew some vegetables on the terrace and then in 2019 decided to quit his job and devote full time to farming.

Marketing comes first

Sanchit says that he started farming after buying one acre of land. Grew more than 75 vegetables in the first year. Before starting farming, he asked some people of his acquaintance that if we grow things organically, will you take it? People agreed to it because they were getting pure things.

To solve the problem of the market, Sanchit asked a family to adopt a farmer who would grow chemical-free grains and give them to you. In this way, the problem of both the people and the farmers got resolved. The farmers can now get the money immediately after the crop is ready.

In this model of organic farming, Sanchit is marketed beforehand and the farmer grows the crop later. That is, if there are 50 families and they say that they want 10 or 20 kg of wheat, then the farmer is asked to grow the crop accordingly. The price of the crop grown under organic farming is also good. He is also promoting the cultivation of different varieties of accumulated crops like Sonamoti wheat, black wheat, Bansi, Kathia, black rice, and red rice. He is also thinking of growing Jowar and Bajra in the future.

Trained farmers

Sanchit says it is not easy to prepare farmers for organic farming. Farmers feel that without urea there will be no crop. So he organized workshops and explained to farmers about organic farming. He tells that 4 things are very important for organic farming. The first is a desi cow, whose dung, urine, etc. are all useful for farming. Secondly, for indigenous seeds, nowadays farmers have to bring seeds again and again, whereas earlier seeds were grown once and used for years. The third thing is to make pesticides from the herbs present around and the fourth thing is to adopt a multi-cropping method.

The gradual process of Organic Farming

Sanchit says that when the farmers are not ready to use the whole land for organic farming at once, they are advised to cultivate one acre only. For the first time on land, we plant spinach because it absorbs chemicals from the soil. Then, the first crop is destroyed as it is not pure. After that, the next crop is planted and gradually this process goes on. This is done because farmers cannot make the farm chemical free in one go.

Store crops in a natural way

It is also necessary to store the crop properly after harvesting, otherwise, the crop may get spoiled. For this, Sanchit does not use any kind of tablet or powder but uses natural things like cow dung and neem. The farmers who are doing organic farming by associating with Sanchit say that there has been a lot of difference in their income. Moreover, they are now getting organic things, which are completely chemical-free.
