Chandigarh, Jan 16(ANI): Punjab, known for its agricultural productions and a vibrant culture, is today the leader of innovative farming, for which the credit goes to its progressive farmers.
Progressive farmers are using all the available mediums to improve the food production and help the state grow, and among them is Pavittarpal Singh Pangali, a progressive farmer and President of the Punjab Kisan Club.
Today, Pavittarpal is rejoicing after having opted for using different methods including taking help of the latest technology.
"I got a chance to work at various levels. We worked as a team with proper cooperation. I had worked with almost eight Presidents of Kisan Club. Therefore the Kisan Club unanimously elected me as their 13th President. The strength of Kisan Club is over 5000 out of which 500 to 700 are women. I got a chance to meet a lot of experts. I have been honoured due to the chances given to me by the Kisan Club and I have progressed a lot," Pavittarpal said.
"In the modern day world, farming in Punjab is completely related with technology, and the conventional methods of farming don't exist. The new precise agricultural farming is stressing the need of technology. The people who don't work according to the precision and without technology are just whiling away their time," he added.
He further said that the Kisan Club will try to start farmer consultancy service in the coming time to help other farmers to get the advantage of progressive farming.
"My personnel target is to convert the farmer's seasonal income into monthly income generating vocation. We are planning to change their cropping patterns so that the farmers will be able to earn every month like salaried servicemen. To achieve it we are promoting various technologies, vegetable growing, banana cultivation as well as popular scientific cultivation," Pavittarpal said.
"The satisfaction level of the achievements is very good because if you don't move forward, your progress halts," he added. (ANI)
