Farmer The young farmer, living near Kanhangad Nityananda Ashram, prepared a paddy field on his house compound using coconut pith where he sowed the seeds, which have now turned into carpets of green.

Kanhangad: Paddy seedlings will sprout even on your house premises, K. Radhakrishnan has proved. The young farmer, living near Kanhangad Nityananda Ashram, prepared a paddy field on his house compound using coconut pith where he sowed the seeds, which have now turned into carpets of green.

The main advantage of Radhakrishnan’s experiment is that watering the seedlings has become easy. Another benefit is that the planting machine can be utilized more efficiently.

Apart from farming, Radhakrishnan is also actively involved in dairying. His yet another activity is working as a tractor driver at the farmer center of Panayal Service Cooperative Bank.

Inspired by the success of Radhakrishnan’s experiment, activists of the task force under the Kanhangad municipality’s Krishi Bhavan have decided to replicate the process in all the abandoned paddy fields in the locality. The water resources department has already initiated measures to ensure adequate water to carry out the agricultural activities.

Radhakrishnan is ably supported by agricultural officer T P Dinesan and task force activists K Nishanth and M Manoj in his efforts. Radhakrishnan can be contacted on: 9072374434.
