Fertilizing a New Idea

Vadde Shiva is Class 9 student from Rollakal School, whose family depends on agriculture for their livelihood.  Shiva has been helping his parents on the farm in his spare time and experienced the hard labour and struggle of working on a farm.

He came up with a novel time saving method to spray fertilizer on their crops. He took the empty fertilizer bag which cost nothing, cut it like a shirt, filled it with fertilizer, wore it like a shirt and then sprayed it on the crops while walking in the field. He has helped a few other farmers use the same method. His parents appreciate his idea and his help to reduce their hardship.

We love Shiva’s creative thinking in assessing a real life problem and coming up with a simple solution that comes at no cost and benefits many.
