Strawberry Farming: Farmers are always looking for ways to increase their income and in this quest they are now doing something different from traditional farming. A farmer living in Gopalganj, Bihar is also one of them. He has attracted everyone's attention by planting strawberries in his farm.

He has become the talk of the town for the red strawberries in his field. Everyone is coming here to learn strawberry farming from him.

We must tell you that strawberry farming is very profitable, if marketed well. However, it requires utmost care and precautions while cultivating.

The land of Gopalganj is ideal for strawberry farming. The farmers like Nikhil Gupta, a resident of Mirganj is inspiring the progressive farmers of Bangalore and Pune to cultivate strawberries. At the same time, he is taking advantage of government schemes such as Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana in which drip irrigation system is installed at subsidized prices. With the help of such schemes, he is earning bumper profits.

More Profit with Less Investment:

By cultivating strawberries, Nikhil has inspired other farmers to do something different and new. He is motivating himself as well as others to take up cultivation of unconventional crops such as strawberry. This young farmer started strawberry cultivation in one acre and now earns Rs 2.5 to 3 lakhs annually. Nikhil says that agriculture must be glamourized in order to attract youth towards it. More and more publicity should be done so that people's interest towards it increases and agriculture can be created.

Nikhil says that in a state like Bihar, many farmers can be benefited by adopting new approaches to farming. Strawberry cultivation requires a temperature of 15 to 30 ° C, so the strawberries are sown in October-November and from January to March, the strawberry plant continues to bear fruit. It is beneficial as well as very nutritious.

There is a need for farmers to be aware and come forward for innovative farming, because there are many varieties of strawberries, which are being prepared in the environment here.
