Case study

Mahavir is a farmer with a land holding of mere 0.4 acre. He installed a treadle pump and is free from the burden of renting expensive diesel pumps. With manual effort of 3-4hours daily he is able to irrigate his farm.

Mahavir now grows three crops a year versus only two earlier and has an annual income of ~Rs36000-40000. With suitable irrigation he has added remunerative crop of vegetables besides a section of his land for samplings and even eucalyptus trees at the corners of his field.
