A successful farmer is a listening farmer. One who pays attention to all current trends. One who is willing to learn and develop new farming systems. A successful farmer understands the ever-changing environment we are working in and the related dangers. To be successful in farming requires greater sacrifice and willingness to change and adopt.
How can one be a successful farmer? This requires constant reading and research. We always encourage farmers to develop a habit of learning through reading latest agricultural updates. Farmers should also be well knowledgeable of weather forecasts. It is a great mistake for a farmer to go to bed without having an update for the following day’s weather. This helps in proper planning. To be a successful farmer one has to be good in communicating with other farmers and be able to share updates with others.
