But, a similar story is of progressive farmer Abhinav Vashisht, a resident of the Sheikhpura district of Bihar. He tried his hand at farming after completing his MBA and today he is earning lakhs of rupees annually from farming.

Abhinav Vashisht chose farming instead of job 

Farmer Abhinav Vashisht said that he has been doing farming for the last 19 years. He has studied for an M.Com and MBA. After completing his studies, he thought it better to do farming instead of a job and today he is earning lakhs of rupees annually from farming, which he would hardly have been able to get in a job. He said that he has 35 acres of land for farming, in which he has a mango orchard in 4 acres and 2 ponds, which are built in 1 biga each.

Cultivation of medicinal plants is yielding good profits

He said that along with farming, he also does fish farming and dairy farming. He has 25 cows and 4 buffaloes in dairy farming. Farmer Abhinav said that traditional crops have been grown in his place since 2004, which include rice, wheat, and many pulses crops.

Farmer Abhinav says that after cultivating the aromatic plant, the processing is completed through a unit. The cost of purchasing this unit in 2005 was approximately Rs 5 lakh. There was also help from the government in purchasing the machine. 

Farmers are earning profits worth lakhs annually 

Actually, while talking about the expenses and profits throughout the year, farmer Abhinav Vashisht said that there is not much expense in the cultivation of aromatic plants. Because, once their seeds or saplings are planted, there is no need to change them for 7 to 8 years. Their cultivation costs around Rs 25 to 30 thousand per acre in a year. This generates an income of around Rs 70 to 75 thousand. Similarly, the cost of fish farming in 1 bigha is around Rs 1.5 lakh. This expense is much less in dairy farming. He said that up to 200 liters of milk come out of his stable every day, which he sells. He said that he earns an annual profit of Rs 20 to 25 lakh from the agriculture, fisheries, and dairy industries. Accordingly, his annual income is more than Rs 30 lakh.
