• Himanshu mondal

Certified Organic Farmer

Himanshu Mandal is a farmer in Raidighi, South 24 Parganas. In 2009, the Aila cyclone had flooded his agricultural lands with saltwater and rendered it infertile. To regain the fertility of his 0.8 acres of land, he took up the organic farming techniques as encouraged by Mukti. He prepares fertilizers with compost, earthworm castings, etc. at his home, which is not only organic but very economical. Hence, it adds to the total profit from his produces. The products are sold in various markets in Kolkata through MuktiFresh. Apart from this, Himanshu also encourages his fellow farmers to take up organic farming. For his bold step and successful endeavour, Mukti has awarded Himanshu the Farmer of the Year,2018.
