SEE PICS! UP school teacher earns lakhs from part-time farming

After spreading knowledge through books for more than a decade, a teacher in Uttar Pradesh has found a new love for farming
So much so that the earnings from his farm are many times his monthly teaching income!
“My yearly salary at the school used to be Rs 1.20 lakh. But I am earning Rs 30 lakh a year from farming activity,” says Amarender Pratap Singh, a government school teacher in Daulatpur village of Barabanki district of Uttar Pradesh.
The farmer, living an hour away from Lucknow, has not only mastered the skills of farming, but is also inspiring and guiding others to prosper.
Looking at some YouTube videos and accessing online tutorials, Amarender decided to grow bananas in one acre of land. “There are a lot of problems with agriculture in the area. Farmers traditionally grow sugarcane, cereals and wheat. But the three crops do not help to earn much money,” Amarender said.
“The earnings from turmeric covered the invested amount for bananas. The money made by selling bananas were complete profits,” he added. After initial successes, Amarender moved to Daulatpur to put all of his efforts into agriculture.
