Shaurya's land in Jhansi, strawberry will now write a new story of promotion, CM Yogi will inaugurate the festival
Jhansi (Jhansi), known as the land of Shaurya, is now ready to write a new text. Strawberry farming will be the main protagonist of this story. The land of Jhansi in UP is very useful and beneficial for strawberry cultivation. To promote this cultivation, 'Strawberry Festival' is being organized in Jhansi. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath (Yogi Adityanath) will inaugurate the festival, which runs from January 17 to February 16. During this festival, the entire Bundelkhand including Jhansi will be motivated for its cultivation.
According to Jhansi District Magistrate (DM) Andra Vamsi, farmers can earn better income through the cultivation of strawberries. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is very serious for the development of Bundelkhand, which is privately included in the backward areas of the state. He wants happiness in Bundelkhand everywhere. There should be progress from industry to farming.
'Strawberries can also be grown in Jhansi and Bundelkhand'
DM told that 'Strawberry cultivation has started for the first time on the land of Bundelkhand. This region has never been known for fruits. Jhansi district is known for its production of pulses, oilseeds and ginger. For the first time, two families in Jhansi, without any government help, have achieved such yields. These families showed strawberry cultivation in Jhansi and Bundelkhand by cultivating strawberries in the region through drip irrigation and sprinkle. If it gets a boost in Jhansi, then farmers will be able to get a new source of better income.
'People will be taught to cultivate strawberries'
According to the District Magistrate, when two families of Jhansi showed this by cultivating strawberries, we took inspiration from them and decided to organize the Strawberry Festival in Jhansi. Principal Secretary Park will also be present at the inauguration of this festival. DM Andra Vamsi informed that people will be encouraged to cultivate strawberries by organizing workshops during Strawberry Festival. People will be told how to cultivate strawberries and how their income will increase by cultivating it.
'Farmers will get good profits from strawberry cultivation'
Happy Chawla, who is a strawberry farmer, said that one and a half acres of sampling has taken place, which has cost about 3 lakh acres. It will produce an estimated 10 thousand kg, whose rate will come in 100 kg market. If it is produced and sold in the manner, then the price will be right. Farmers will get good profits from its cultivation.
According to Gaurav Garg, an expert on strawberry farming, strawberry farming can end the plight of farmers of Jhansi and Bundelkhand. A kilo of strawberries is available for 70 to 80 rupees. The strawberries that two families have grown in Jhansi have the same taste as the strawberries of Mahabaleshwar. If strawberry cultivation was encouraged in Jhansi and Bundelkhand, it would be in the interest of farmers.
