Fertilizer Gun and Monkey gun

Potkuri Mahesh, a young farmer from Ergatla mandal in Nizamabad district,Telengana has put together a simple device to dispense fertilisers on standing crops.

For the ‘fertilizer gun’, he only used locally available material that included PVC plastic bags, PVC pipes, dummy caps, iron clips and some solvent gum to put together his device, totally costing just Rs 320!

The device is adjustable based on crop area and requirement of fertiliser. He has used it on his maize crop successfully.

The young farmer has also made a “Monkey Gun”.

The monkey gun is used to scare away monkeys besides wild hogs and birds from agriculture fields. Several farmers have bought the monkey gun, again put together with locally available material, at Rs 500 a piece.
