There is a saying that if the milk goes bad, only those people who do not know how to make cheese cry, but Gujaratis who are resourceful and skilled in finding something different turn the disaster into an opportunity.

It is likely to earn Rs one lakh if ​​the sales loss is halved.

Mangoes fall from hurricane mangoes Bhaunitabahen Patel, a woman farmer from Boriyach village in Navsari taluka, has been cultivating mangoes, chickpeas and sugarcane organically for years. With the help of each member of the family, they grow more than 25 mangoes out of 55 mangoes planted in their land every year. Organically cooked mangoes fetched a good price, earning them over Rs 2.5 lakh a year. However, due to heavy storms this year, about 90 per cent of their mangoes were destroyed, leaving them with more than two lakh losses.

It was the turn of the farmers to throw away the fallen curries or sell them at the price of water.

This time, a good crop was
expected, said Bhaunitabahen Patel , a woman farmer. She cultivates horticultural crops in her village, including mangoes, chickpeas and sugarcane. This time the family was hoping for a good harvest with good flowering on the trees. The mangoes on the mangoes also grew. In the early days, there was a good harvest of mangoes and the prices were good. However, the hurricane later destroyed the mango crop.

Various products are being made from dried mangoes.

The
hurricane in the state had turned all hopes into despair. The heavy storms had brought down the mangoes that had fallen on the mangoes before the harvest, thus reducing the value of the mangoes. Most of the farmers suffered heavy losses and many farmers were forced to throw away their crops, but Bhaunitabah did not give up. Various types of pickles, chips, amchoor powder etc. are made from the mangoes that have been washed away by the strong winds and are ready to be sold in the open markets in Navsari district and surrounding villages.

Under the guidance of the Agricultural University, the family is making the product and selling it for the first time.

An
advisory was also issued by Navsari Krishi University regarding the losses incurred in the district with the help of Krishi University, in which new experiments were suggested to compensate the farmers for the losses incurred. The Agricultural University provided all kinds of information to the farmers through webinars, from which the woman farmer has started making pickles and other items from raw mangoes. Items including various pickles are being made from mangoes picked by family members. This is the first time they have said so.

Marmalade, pickles and amchoor powder will be made from mango and sold.





New experiments alleviate losses The
woman farmer said that we had a situation where the income of mangoes was zero. Like other farmers, we had to break our backs due to heavy losses, but we have been trained by Navsari University's Center for Agricultural Sciences to make and market various products, so that we are relieved when the losses are halved.

Organically farmed by the family.
