Mr. Balasaheb Garkal
Beed, Maharashtra.
Type of crop : Cotton
Total Field Area : 2.5 acres
Mr. Balasaheb Gahininath Garkal is a farmer with a decent educational background. He has been practically maintaining the capital investment and water requirements low for last 16 years. He takes the cotton (Mahiko jangi) crop on 2- 2.5 acres of his land.
He has been facing a few issues like larvae on flowers and sucking pests in his field. It was hampering the production. On an average, he used to get about 5.5 quintal cotton from 1 acre land. Deducting the expenditure, he used to get a net profit of about Rs. 8000 to Rs 9000 from the same. However, the market rate was affected by the poor-quality crop and so were his net profits.

Mr. Garkal started using Biofit products during his last season of kharif crops. He sprayed Biofit Stimrich and Bio-99 for 4 times during the main stages of the plant growth. Hence, his plants growth was healthier and faster compared to last year’s growth. Also, he observed that maximum flowers successfully went through the budding and flowering stages. He sprayed Biofit Intact, Bio-99 for 3 times to prevent the sucking pests.
