Rajiv is a part-time Chartered Accountant and a full-time farmer and earns more from farming than his chartered accountancy firm says “Drip irrigation is the best way to reduce water wastage and labour cost, while mulching is nothing but a thin layer of plastic in which holes are made to put the seeds. This restores the sun rays for a long time and retains humidity of the soil. It also restricts the growth of weeds around the main crop,”

Cash Crop Farming
Cash Crop farming : A cash crop is an agricultural crop which are cultivated to generate profits in a short duration owing to their short growing cycle. We grow cash crop as wheat, maize, vegetables, soya bean, sugarcane, rice etc.
A cash crop is an agricultural crop which is grown for sale to return a profit. It is typically purchased by parties separate from a farm. The term is used to differentiate marketed crops from subsistence crops, which are those fed to the producer's own livestock or grown as food for the producer's family. Prices for major cash crops are set in commodity markets with global scope, with some local variation (termed as "basis") based on freight costs and local supply and demand balance.
What People Says
Sachin Kale a mechanical engineer from Nagpur who started his career by working at a power plant and rapidly rose to the top over the years and invested his 15-year-old provident fund in setting up a clean energy model where his farm was useful all year round and gave a maximum of profit, says “Everything was a challenge, as I had absolutely no clue about farming. I had to learn everything from tilling the land to sowing the seeds.”
A farmer from Bahirwadi, Vishwanath’s village is in the drought-prone Beed district of Maharashtra. However, he has earned Rs 7 lakh from farming on just one acre of land! Vishwanath decided to give multi-cropping a try, and he also figured out that he could increase his crop by building a wire fence and planting creepers and climbers on them. Vishwanath also installed a pipeline with his first-year profits to ensure sprinklers watered his plants. He has also picked up farming methods like raised-bed farming and mulching over the years, which has proved to be beneficial.
