The success story of a progressive farmer Mr. Anand Gadekar, from Ghargaon, who started farming out of sense of RESPONSIBILITY, being the eldest one in the family. In those days, even fetching water for farming was a task, he explains. But somehow managing his water requirements from neighbours, he started his journey towards farming with 4 acres of land.
After a stint of work at his farm in 1992 with a thought of switching towards "less water usage for farming" Mr. Gadekar opted for Drip Irrigation of Jain Irrigation Technology for his farm for plantation of grapes. And there began his journey towards prosperity in his orchard..
Now with prosperity in his farm with better yields and greater profits, Mr. Gadekar who once owned a 4 acre farm is now an owner of 30 acres, with not just grapes in his orchard but many other varieties of fruits!!
Mr. Gadekar planted Jain Tissue culture banana in 6 acres and pomegranate in 5 acres using Jain Technology. On his farm also flourish a variety of fruits like jackfruit, amla, custard-apple, mangoes, coconut, bamboo, guava, sapota (chicoo), etc.
Mr. Gadekar added that, "I have been using Jain Drip-lines for my orchard since the last 29-30 years but till date I have not faced any kind of issue with the system because of which I have full trust on the Jain Products. I have been exporting grapes every year and I am completely satisfied with the products and services provided by Jain Irrigation"
Mr. Gadekar has been exporting his grapes since decade now and also during the pandemic Mr. Gadekar started an online fruit delivering business, for safe and comfortable access of fruits to people at their doorstep!
