And so it was in the case of Potkuri Mahesh, a young farmer from Ergatla mandal in Nizamabad district, who put together a simple device to dispense fertilisers on standing crops. Generally considered a laborious task that involves constant bending at each plant, adding fertilisers to crops has been made easy by Mahesh, who has come up with what he calls ‘Fertilizer Gun’. In these days of the coronavirus pandemic, there is a major labour shortage in the district, and dispensing fertilisers, particularly for maize, is a labour-intensive exercise and expensive too.
