Mr. Dhanaji Dhavale
Solapur, Maharashtra.
Type of crop : Sugarcane
Total Field Area : 5 acres
Mr. Dhanaji Bhimrao Dhavale is a traditional farmer. He also possesses a tractor and a few cattle for side income. He cultivates sugarcane crop (breed 86032) on 4-5 acres of his land every year. He cultivates the sugarcane every alternate year during September-October. His crops face a trouble caused by an insect called humni. Once the crop was 12 to 14 months old, humni used to infect it and reduce the weight of the sugarcanes. Also, the heavy rains used to pause the growth of roots.
Mr. Dhavale started using Biofit’s products offered by Netsurf during his last cultivation season.

He used good amount of fertilisers at the initial sowing step. He also used Biofit NPK and Biofit SHET through drip irrigation every month for initial 5 months. It improved the soil health and quality. The crops availed maximum nutrients in the soil for their growth and the crops sustained very well even during heavy rains.
