Dilip Kumar Singh is the name of such a progressive farmer who has completely devoted his life to vegetable farming. Dilip is the son of Sri Ram Vyas Singh, a resident of Mehaddiganj near Sasaram in Rohtas district.
He was born in a poor family in the year 1972, January 1st and struggled a lot for his childhood upliftment. He had to discontinue his study mid-way after Intermediate and switched over to livelihood earning through the way of vegetable shopping in the year 1993. Due to insufficient earnings for the family survival, he could not stick to the vegetable shopping alone, but started vegetable farming on leased land of 02-acres in village Mishirpur, Sasaram block as he had no land of his own. He worked hard on the vegetable field, produced vegetables successfully and in turn got good incomes. But this was also not very sufficient to quench his thirst of earning a very handsome amount which led him to extend the vegetable cultivation in large areas, nearly 20-acres in villages like Kuraich, Dyalpur, Lalganj, Neema, Kota, Suma and Jaynagar, all of which were nearer to his native village at Sasaram block. Gradually he started earning a good amount out of the vegetable production and improved the standard of living more than before. In the year 2004, he came in contact with Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Rohtas, Bikramganj and the KVK-Scientists guided him in scientific production of different vegetables - Tomato, Okra, Cauliflower, Brinjal, Potato, Onion, Chilli, Bottle gourd, Bitter gourd, Capsicum etc. which were fetching him much higher profits than ever before. In between, he was also motivated to receive latest techniques-cum-training from Indian Institute of Vegetable Research (IIVR), Varanasi & Department of Horticulture, BHU, Varanasi. He got through it and gained innovative knowledge for producing organic vegetables. Thereafter, with continuous technical guidance and know-how from KVK, Rohtas, Bikramganj and BAU, Sabour, Bhagalpur, he started producing large quantities of vegetables, both organic and non-organic base on 100-acres of leased land and earning around Rs.7-10 lakhs income in a year. Apart from that, he also providing employment to 15-20 thousand labourers each year in his own vegetable farming.
Presently he has proved himself much more than a vegetable grower and has become a potential entrepreneur in the field of vegetable production. More interestingly, he has inducted innovative interventions into the system of vegetable production and marketing management; he has adopted Inter-cropping, mixed-cropping, timely prevention and curative measures, three-tier-management system of human resources in cropping and effective labour management in the entire farming system. He has brought about radical changes in the innovative management package and contributed toward record productions in various crops in the district. The following tables depicts the level of production, productivity and net returns being accrued by a very progressive & potential farmer like Dilip Kumar Singh who has raised himself from zero-background to an excellent level of entrepreneurship not only in the district or state, but in the whole country.
