Farmer Dhanraj has taken 40 bighas of land on lease. He is expecting a turnover of 1 crore from vegetable crop.
Due to unseasonal rains, farmers doing traditional farming have suffered a lot. At the same time, due to the use of low-tunnel and modern technology, there has not been more than 5 to 10 percent damage in my fields.
This is to say of that farmer of Baran, who left 3 government jobs and started farming with modern technology and earned a profit of 38 lakhs from soybean crop in the first time.
This time in the farming of my country, I met Dhanraj Lovevanshi, a farmer from Asalpur (Aklera) of Baran….
Dhanraj Lovevanshi (29), a farmer from Asalpur in Chhimpabarod tehsil, about 90 km from Baran district, is the inspiration for the youth of the area. Here Dhanraj is growing 10 types of vegetables with modern technology on 5 bighas of his own and 40 bighas of land taken on lease.
Presently the vegetable is going to the local market. His vegetables are ready to go to the mandis of Jaipur, Kota and Delhi. He said that a turnover of 1 crore is expected this season. The season will be completed in August-September.

Father and brother do separate farming
Dhanraj told that father Kalulal has been doing traditional farming. He is doing farming along with his younger brother in 15 bighas in his ancestral village Sarthal. Dhanraj is cultivating 45 bighas in Aklera with Israel technology. He said that in 2011-12, he did his 10th standard and in 2013-14, he did his 12th standard from Sarthal, his native village.
During this, he got selected in Pre BSTC in 2013. BSTC went on for two and a half years from a college in Kota, during which he also did LDC coaching.
Selection in LDC, Third Grade Teacher in 2018
Dhanraj said that after completing pre-BSTC in 2015-15, he started preparing for the competition. Gave the third grade teacher exam in 2016, but didn’t get selected. LDC vacancies came out in 2017 from RPSC and High Court.
In 2018 I got selected in RPSC LDC. I joined the job of clerk. After this, got selected in High Court LDC, then joined the job of clerk in Aklera Court. In 2018, selection was also done in third grade teacher.
Dhanraj has connected the drip plant in the field with the fertilizer drums. Therefore, along with irrigation, the medicine also reaches the roots of the plants.
Leaving the job of a clerk in the court in 2019, on 20 February 2019, I joined the primary school of Bhil-Bhalti village of Jhalawar as a teacher.
When soybean farming made bumper profit
Dhanraj said that after leaving the job of a teacher, in June 2022, apart from my share of 5 bighas of land, I took 40 bighas of land adjacent to the farm on lease. Soybean was grown on this land in which huge profit was made.
After the production of soyabean, Dhanraj started working on the technology of multicrop vegetable. Wanted to do farming in a modern way. That’s why in November 2022 Mahatma Phule of Maharashtra went to Ruhori Agricultural University.
Israeli technology learned in Maharashtra
Stayed there for 3-4 days and learned about Israeli technology of multicrop formula and vegetables. Returning, he prepared low-tunnels in his fields, planted fertilizer plants, prepared drip system. In the entire 45 bighas, he sowed 10 types of vegetables with Israeli technology. Now the vegetables are getting ready. Farmer Dhanraj hopes that in 6 months there will be a turnover of 1 crore of vegetables.
Now 40 people have been given employment
At present, farmer Dhanraj is preparing the crops of chilli, tomato, brinjal, okra, bitter gourd, pumpkin, gourd, watermelon, melon and marigold flower in the fields. From whom production has started. To handle the essence of farming, Dhanraj has employed 40 people from the area. These people do the work of taking care of the crop on a daily basis, spraying medicine, separating the useless plants and transplanting the nursery-ready plants in the low-tunnel.
Dhanraj has also prepared a nursery in the field itself. After preparing in the nursery, the plants are planted in the low-tunnel. Nursery plants can be saved from weather by changing the place.
Farmer Dhanraj has connected the entire 45 bighas of land with water dripping technique. Due to this the crop gets equal amount of water. Time is saved by irrigating the entire crop at the same time and to sprinkle the medicine with this system along with the water, spraying the medicine in the entire field by connecting it to the fertilizer drum. With this technique, irrigation and spraying of medicine is done in the entire 45 bigha field in a single day. Along with this, water is also saved.
Agro student’s class starts in the field itself
Agriculture students now visit the farmer’s farm to take lessons in farming from the former teacher. Teachers also come. Dhanraj tells the children about the new technique of farming. About multicrop vegetables, Dhanraj explained the benefits of low-tunnel farming to a class that reached his farm.
Dhanraj also told the children that the pumpkin crop planted in the field is of G-1 generation. The plant bears two types of flowers, male and female. A mail flower does not bear fruit. In this situation, cutting of male flowers is done so that maximum number of female flowers can be converted into vegetables. This technique is used to increase production in many vegetables including chili tomatoes. This cutting is known as Generation One, Two and Three.
Dhanraj’s wife gives full support to her husband in dairy and farming. Dhanraj is also able to give full time to daughter and family. Along with this, they are also giving employment to the people of the area.
Bitter gourd and ghee prepared in Dhanraj’s farm. Presently this produce is going to the local market. After being fully prepared, the goods will go to the mandis of Kota, Jaipur and Delhi.
Started dairy farming with one buffalo, now 23 buffaloes
Dhanraj told that in October 2018, I started dairy farming with a buffalo in Aklera. My wife was handling the dairy during the job. Gradually, I was also increasing the dairy work. Now I have 23 buffaloes in my dairy farm. There is an annual turnover of 36 lakhs from milk. 4 employees handle the dairy. Milking is done automatically. Buffalo dung is used as fertilizer in the fields.
Dhanraj told that he left the job in 2022 after working as a teacher for about three and a half years. While working as a teacher, I felt that it was a very limited job. I can earn more by working harder than this. He was also away from his family. In such a situation, decided to leave the job and left the government job of teacher in 2022.
