I’m Rajinder Pal Singh and I’m a resident of Kalalwala Village of District- Bhatinda. Earlier I also use to do conventional farming like others, but one day after facing severe side-effect of the pesticide spray on my nervous system, I decided to quit chemicals and adopt natural way of farming. And in decision my whole family supported me. In the beginning I started Organic Farming with 4 acres of land with the help of my uncle. I took no training for organic farming, my uncle taught me about organic farming, by reading it from books. Now I use cow dung manure, homemade neem hing spray and river water in the fields.
In 2001 I bought rose saplings from Uttar Pradesh and since then I am doing rose faming. I also grow Mung Beans, Masoor, Maize, Soy Bean, Peanut, Bengal Gram, Wheat, Basmati, Chick Pea, Guar and other seasonal vegetables. In total I have 58 acres of land, from which I use 6 acres of land for rose farming, 12 acres of land for basmati and the rest of the land for other crops.
I have also established my own oil extraction project in my farm where I make rose oil, and rose water. I also produce lentils, pulses, vegetables, maize, rice, and other seasonal crops and sold them under the brand name Bhakar Organic Farm. My every product is organically certified by Bhumi Vardaan Association, and I am also an associated farmer member of this organization.
Rose oil and rose water are two of my products whose demand comes in advance booking for purchasing and mainly it is exported to America, Canada and other countries. I have also gifted my rose oil to Prince Charles and his wife in 2010 in an event in Fatehgarh Sahib.
Currently I’m living I a joint family with my wife, children, uncles, aunts and cousins and I give all my credit of my success to my family for their endless support. I am happy that I chose organic farming over conventional farming and I also want other farmers to do the same. Today I’m earning good profit from organic farming.

Today ignorance and greed is killing nature, and organic farming is the only way to repair the damage and also make to make the environment healthy for our coming future. By using chemicals and toxin over the crops we are ultimately poisoning ourselves. Organic farming is the need of the hour, so everyone should switch towards it.
Today our earth needs us and we as a farmer are the most responsible person in saving the earth from pollution. Yes, by doing organic farming there is less yield, but in the coming times, there will be high demand for organic products, not just because it is healthy, but also because it will become the need of the hour. Moreover, organic farming is sustainable and requires less finance, it only requires labor, and if a farmer is interested in switching to organic farming then he can do it very easily.
