Mr. Vepuri Shadrak Dharmaja’s impeccable Agricultural reforms stand noteworthy

For the love of horticulture and to help farmers in the State earn better, Mr. Vepuri Shadrak Dharmaja left his central government job and joined the State government to implement various innovative programmes to promote horticulture. Mr. Dharmaja, Deputy Director at the State horticulture department, has been working towards crop diversification, and encourages farmers to take a leap from low-income to high-income crops through innovative agricultural practices. One of his notable achievements is the cultivation of banana through tissue culture in tribal areas of Kadapa district. The move led to a threefold increase in the tribal farmers’ income, resulting in a drastic change in their socio-economic status.

The region has unique climatic condition, where one spell of rain can help in growing vegetables and the morning dew suffices to cultivate tomatoes. He encouraged them to take up dry-land horticulture crop like mango and today the area emerged as hub of mangoes, which are sought by food processing industries. Some of the notable achievements of Mr. Dharmaja are that for the first time, the exports of Banana commenced from Andhra Pradesh to Middle-East Countries during 2009-10. During his tenure as Project Director, Chittoor the district stood 1st in implementation of Drip-irrigation in area coverage, out of 10 top districts in the country 6 districts of Mangoes from Chittoor district and for the first time Orchid Cultivation under Green House in Krishna District on Integrated Model was promoted.

Under his guidance, a total produce of 25.00 lakh No. of Grafted Vegetables Seedlings were made (Drought Resistance and Disease Resistance) and distributed to the farmers which helped them in 30% increase in Productivity and Income of the farmers. He also implemented PPP Projects in association with ICCOA for production and procurement of Organic Turmeric, Pepper and Medicinal Plants from Tribal areas of Visakhapatnam district which helps in increase in income levels of tribal farmers.
