There are huge possibilities in the field of agriculture. If farming is done with hard work and dedication, then success is certain. This has been proved by Sudama Sahu, a young, advanced and progressive farmer living in Bargarh district of Odisha.

Circumstances became such that Sudama Sahu got the responsibilities of the family in his childhood. Due to this, Sahu could not even pursue higher education and had to leave studies after 12th. Sahu believed in himself. After coming out of adversity, today he is running his own indigenous seed bank and his annual turnover is 40 lakh rupees.

Sudama, who is passionate about farming, was also getting a government job from sports quota, but even after his father’s displeasure, he turned it down and continued to do farming. Today the books written by him are taught in schools and he also goes to different places and gives information to the people about farming and seed bank.

According to Dainik Bhaskar’s report, Sudama has more than 1100 seeds of different varieties. They market them across the country. Initially, he used to go from village to village and collect seeds. Then he realized that it could not last long. After this, Sudama went to Gandhi Ashram in Wardha, Maharashtra and took training in organic farming and saving seeds.

Sudama’s seed bank consists mostly of paddy varieties. Out of 1100, more than 1000 are of paddy and rest of the varieties of pulses. They have different varieties not only from India but also from many countries including Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Britain. Research is also being done on the seeds of Sudama in many institutions. Scientists also take seeds from them.

Do farming to save seeds

According to the news of Bhaskar, Sudama currently cultivates on 5 acres of land. On one part of this they grow crops for their own food, while on the remaining parts they cultivate to save seeds.

Sudama collects the seeds in the indigenous way. They have a large number of earthen pots. He has applied cow dung and turmeric paste on it. After applying the paste, they dry the pots in the sun and after keeping the seeds, neem leaves are put on top. Due to this the seeds do not get insects. Seed care is also done from time to time.
