More attention is being given to adopt the methods of organic farming. Not only Indians but people from abroad are also interested in this method of farming. That’s why MaungMaung Tin, who is an industrialist, businessman, and farmer from Myanmar, came to India this week, and visited the “Organic Model Farms” developed by Suminter India Organics located in Akola and Wai (Satara) of Maharashtra.
During this time a program was organized where Tin interacted directly with the farmers. Tin saw crops like sugarcane, vegetable, turmeric etc. being cultivated with organic methods. After this he said that his aim is to produce turmeric and ginger in Myanmar in organic way. Tin has tried to understand the turmeric’s organic crop system and its working in detail from farmers and learnt how it is beneficial. Tin also learnt about the machines used in boiling, drying and polishing along with the turmeric crop.
