Golden words of Farmer
I have over 300 coconut trees in my farm. My farming practices were not so organized and hence, I faced many difficulties in nurturing my trees to give good yields. Fortunately, from the year 2018, Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation representatives paid regular visits to my farm and educated to about various techniques and saved my farm from pest attacks. Compared to previous yields, I am getting substantial quantity of coconuts in my farm this year

I am involved in coconut farming, since 1974. Despite the experience I had in farming I was stuck, when pests like Rhinoceros Beetle attacked my trees. The Parachute Kalpavriksha Team has guided me with clear strategies on how to trap pests and arrest them. Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation has also shared knowledge on water management techniques for increase of yield per tree and strategies to save water during drought conditions. I am very happy they are visiting my farm once in a month to guide me on various aspects of coconut farming.
We are involved in coconut farming practice for over 25 years. Stem bleeding disease had affected our Thanjavur coconut trees to a large extent. So, we decided to call Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation team for inspection. After inspection, their team suggested us remedies to overcome the disease. We applied those techniques and heaved a sigh of relief, on seeing the Nitrogen levels in our soil which benefited us in a higher yield of coconuts per tree. I wholeheartedly thank Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation, for its service to farmers! Keep serving farmer community.
