In technical training provided to the group, we covered practical on how to sow seed, how to take care of the crop, how and when to harvest a particular crop, how to distribute bio-fertilizer and manure and such other aspects of farming. Jogeshwari group now handles all of the responsibilities towards farming effectively and efficiently. These responsibilities include clearing the field, sowing, giving doses to the crop, harvesting, weighing, binding bunches as per requirement, sorting & grading etc.
Along with the training and resources, Urjafarms has created a market for the SHG wherein the produce is sold and distributed. Urjafarms sells and delivers this produce to its Nashik customers through its android mobile app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=app.urjafarms.com) Also, the company sells the produce to its B2B customers located all over Maharashtra. First harvest of the projects started in the month of September 2020 and the group has earned around 25000/- ₹ a month since then. This amount will increase day by day as crops become ready for harvesting. With the involvement of SHG, now Urjafarms will be able to supply its customers for a long term.
Because of this project, Urjafarms achieved 4 important aspects involved in this field which are 1. Quality 2. Authenticity 3. Price Control 4. Steady availability. Urjafarms & MSRLM are looking forward to implement this project on a state level.
With the use of strong will, training and right resources; MSRLM, Urjafarms & SHGs like Jogeshwari we intend to achieve our mission #KillCancer. Urjafarms is not just about preventing cancer but primarily about distributing food that is nutritious.
