Makes farming a profitable venture
September 6, 2015
An edible food forest raised on zero-cost principle
Purvabhumi, the ‘adisil vanam’ (edible food forest), spread across 107 acres at Mudukulam village of Gandarvakottai taluk in Pudukottai district of Tamil Nadu, was once a cashew grove. It has been brought to this shape over 22 years of hard work, continuous financial loss and a determination to make farming a profit-making venture. The turnaround was made possible with analytical reasoning, costing and application of appropriate technology.
