Make Embroidery Patches Today With the Patch-Kit Pro

With Colman and Company’s Embroidery Patch-Kit Pro, your embroidery business will have everything it needs to make easy one-offs or small production runs. A Patch-Kit Pro allows your embroidery equipment to customize every patch you sell.



We do custom patches, embroidered patches, printed patches, custom Velcro patches, clothing labels, PVC patches, custom leather patches, custom keychains, and other promotional products. Following is an overview of our products.




The Patch-Kit Pro is designed exclusively for embroidery businesses looking to produce larger quantities of patches immediately. The kit is centered on the DK-JP14 Heat Press with a 12 X 14″ platen, end of cycle alarm and an industrial-type clamping system.





The Patch-Kit Pro includes:

DK-JP14 Heat Press
Hot Knife and Universal Cutting Tip
Hot Tool Holder
5 Yards of White Patch Material
5 Yards of Black Patch Material
10 Yards of Heat Seal
Using the Colman Patch-Kit Pro and Patch Material to create customized patches is easy, by following these steps:






1.      Create a Design

The three things to keep in mind, when creating custom embroidered patch designs:

The patch must have a satin running stitch as a border, wider is better than thin.
The border and shape of the patch should be smooth to allow for easier cutting.
Choose a Patch Material will be your background color – no stitches needed.
You must use Polyester embroidery thread, like Madeira Polyneon embroidery thread.
Colman Patch Material is made of 100 percent polyester, with an “embroidered” look to you the time, effort and cost with stitching the background yourself. Patch material comes in 10 different colors, which make it easy to choose a background color for your patch.

2.      Hoop Patch Material

With Colman Patch Material, there is no need for a stabilizer, backing or topping. With Patch Material, there is no adhesive on the back to catch in the bobbin case and mess up your embroidery machine. This makes it necessary to make sure you hoop the fabric straight.

Patch Material is unique and we have spent a long time finding the best solution.  It’s completely different from HTV material such as the HTV brand vinyl.

3.      Sew Out the Patch Design

When creating a design with your embroidery machine, always stitch out a little more to accommodate any mistakes.

4.      Trim Excess Patch Material

When sewing a bunch of embroidered patches, keep all patches together when trimming excess material.

5.      Attach Patch Material to Heat Seal Product

Place Teflon Wrap flat down to protect the Heat Press.
Place the Patch Material face down your heat press, or if using a hand iron, place it on a worktable.
Place Heat Seal materials on top of the sewn patches face down with paper side up.
Use Teflon Sheets on both top and bottom, to make a “sandwich.” The Patch Material has hot melt glue on the backside.
Heat the patch on a heat press at 320-330° F for about 10-15 seconds, using 40 psi of pressure. On a hand iron, use significant hand weight with no steam.
Turn the Teflon Wrap/patch “sandwich” over and heat it again.
6.      Cut Out Sealed Patches
Remove extra patch and seal material by roughly cutting out sealed patches. Leave ¼ to ½” of material surrounding the satin stitch border.

7.      Trim Finished Patch

After heating a Hot Knife for 15 minutes, cut out the individual patches. Don’t forget to use a Hot Tool Stand for protection! First, put the patch on a glass surface, and then run the Universal Tip along the edge of the patch directly along the satin stitch. This will form a seal along the edge, to secure the stitch. Wipe excess on the Hot Knife with a dry cloth or paper towel.

Use a consistent and pressure and speed for best cutting results with the Hot Knife.



Now you have a completed embroidery patch that can be attached by heat or sewing. With a heat press, use 320-330° F for 15-20 seconds, turn over and press from the back of the garment for another 15-20 seconds. This activates the glue on the back of the embroidered patch, making a permanent bond with the fabric, one that is almost impossible to pull off (at least without ripping the fabric first).

Custom embroidered patches can be a bargain for the customer that wants high-quality embroidery at a lower cost than direct embroidery. Organizations get considerable pride in showing their distinct character when embroidered patches. Custom patches provide a professional look to uniforms, work outfits and cheer apparel, among others.

What's the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

What's the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

Orthodontists and dentists both help patients improve their oral health, but in different ways. Dentistry is a broad medical specialty that deals with the teeth, orthodontistinsanantonio.com , gum, nerves, and jaw, while orthodontics is a specialty within dentistry that focuses on correcting bites, occlusion, and the straightness of teeth. One important difference is that all orthodontists like Drs. Burk and Flinn are dentists, but not all dentists are licensed orthodontists.



How are they similar?

The main similarity between a dentist and orthodontist is that they both focus on oral care. An orthodontist can work in a dental office and provide the same care as a dentist. So in this respect, they are quite similar. They are both considered doctors, and deal with the teeth and gums.

How are they different?

There are more differences than similarities. An orthodontist requires additional schooling as a dental specialty; the situation is similar to a doctor who obtains additional schooling to become a surgeon. Another difference is that orthodontists specialize in helping patients with the alignment of their teeth, improving their bite, or fitting them for corrective braces and devices. If a patient has an overbite, a dentist will refer him or her to an orthodontist.

Dentists typically encourage good oral hygiene and provide services related to:

Tooth decay
Root canals
Gum disease
Crowns
Bridges
Veneers
Teeth whitening
Orthodontists are dentists that specialize in the alignment of teeth, and provide services related to:

Misaligned teeth
Crowded teeth
Overbite
Underbite
What an orthodontist can help with

Orthodontists help with crooked teeth, but they assist patients with other issues as well. These include overbites and underbites, crossbites, spaces between teeth, overcrowding of teeth, and the treatment of temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Additional problems with the jaw also need to be treated by an orthodontist.

While a dentist may be trained to provide orthodontic care in addition to extractions, TMJ treatments, and fillings, trusting your smile to an orthodontist can better balance the different procedures you require.

To learn more about the difference between dentists and orthodontists, or to schedule an initial consultation with Drs. Burk and Flinn, please give our team at Burk & Flinn Orthodontics a call at our convenient Rockville and Olney, MD office.

Hajj Guide: How to Perform Umrah


As mentioned in the article “Are Hajj and Umrah Same Thing?”, Umrah is the lesser pilgrimage. It involves ihram, Tawaf (circumambulating the Kabah), Cheap umrah package , Sa`i (walking between mounts of Safa and Marwah), and shaving or cutting the hair.

Cheap umrah package
Cheap umrah package


So, these are the main 4 rituals of Umrah:

1. Ihram

The first steps in your Umrah are to put on the clothing of ihram and to make the intention of Umrah. For more information on ihram and its restrictions, refer to the article “All About Ihram.”

After making the intention of ihram, try to spend your time in remembering Allah, reading the Qur’an, and supplicating. It is recommended also to chant Talbiyah frequently. The words of Talbiyah are:

Labbayka Allahumma labbayk.

Labbayka la shareeka laka labbayk.

Inna al-hamda wa-n-ni`mata laka wal-mulk.

La shareeka lak.

Here I am at Your service, O Lord, here I am.

Here I am at Your service. You have no partners.

Yours alone is all praise and all bounty, and Yours alone is sovereignty.

You have no partners.

Male pilgrims are recommended to raise up their voices when repeating the words of Talbiyah. Males and females repeat Talbiyah until they start Tawaf.

2. Tawaf


Hajj 1438: Journey of Souls (Special Coverage)

The first ritual to perform after arriving in Makkah is Tawaf. There is no problem if you rest before going to Tawaf if you feel tired.

When you reach Makkah, leave your baggage in the hotel or in a safe place, and prepare yourself for Tawaf by performing ghusl (ritual bathing), if possible, or at least wudu’ (ablution).

Scholars have two opinions regarding the necessity of purity for Tawaf. Some scholars hold that you must have wudu’ before Tawaf and others deem it unnecessary.

The latter opinion is stronger since the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did not ask people accompanying him in his pilgrimage to make wudu’ for Tawaf. According to this opinion, someone who loses wudu’ before or in the middle of Tawaf need not renew it; they can make Tawaf without wudu’. It is up to you to choose either of the opinions.

Menstruating women cannot do Tawaf until they are pure and have performed ghusl.

For men, it is recommended that you drape the upper piece of ihram over your left shoulder only, exposing the right one. This is called idtiba`. It was practiced by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and his Companions when they made Umrah in AH 7. At the time, the polytheists claimed that the fever of Madinah weakened Muslims, so the Prophet ordered his Companions to uncover their right shoulders and to jog in the first three rounds to show the polytheists their strength.

On entering the Sacred Mosque (Al-Masjid Al-Haram), it is recommended to say thedu`aa’ of entering mosques:

A`udhu bi-llahi al-`azheem, wa bi-wajhihi al-kareem, wa sultanihi al-qadeem, mina ash-shaitani ar-rajeem.

Allahumma salli `ala Muhammad. Allahumma ighifirli dhunubi waftah li abwaba rahmatik.

I seek refuge with Allah the Supreme, I seek refuge with His honored face, with His everlasting authority, from the cursed Devil.

In the name of Allah. O Allah, Bless Muhammad! O Allah! Forgive my sins and open Your doors of mercy for me.

Now you are ready to start Tawaf. Tawaf involves walking around the Ka`bah seven times. Each round starts and ends with the Black Stone, with the Ka`bah being on your left side. If it is possible to reach the Black Stone, kiss it quietly; if it is not, you can touch it and kiss your hand or just face it and point at it saying “Bismillah, Allahu Akbar” (In the name of Allah, Allah is the Greatest).


Your Guide to a Perfect Hajj (In-Depth)

In the first three rounds, males are recommended to jog from the Black Stone to the Yemeni corner, the third of the Ka`bah’s corners and the one preceding the Black Stone.

While doing Tawaf, busy yourself with dhikr (remembrance of Allah) and supplication. You are in a very blessed time and a very blessed place, so do not miss the chance. Pray Allah to forgive your sins, to dispel your worries, to grant you the benefits of the world and the hereafter, and to give you whatever favors you would like. Show humbleness and genuine need to Allah, and ask Him the Almighty for you, your parents, your family, and the whole Muslim Ummah.

When you reach the Yemeni corner try to touch it if possible. If you can’t, you need not point at it or do anything. Supplicate Allah until you reach the Black Stone saying:

Rabbana a`tina fi ad-dunya hasanatan wa fi al-akhirati hasanatan wa qina `adhaba an-nar.

Our Lord! Grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and save us from the punishment of the Fire.

After finishing Tawaf, pray two rak`ahs behind Maqam Ibrahim (the Station of Ibrahim) or a little bit away from it. Recite Surat Al-Kafirun (Surah 109) in the firstrak`ah and Surat Al-Ikhlas (Surah 112) in the second rak`ah.

It is recommended that you drink Zamzam water after you have finished Tawaf and the two-rak`ah prayer.

Be careful of the following things:
Do not crowd to kiss the Black Stone or to touch the Yemeni corner.
Make sure that Hijr Isma`il (the Enclosure of Isma`il – the arch between the north and the west corners of the Ka`bah) is included in your Tawaf. This place is considered part of the Ka`bah and therefore your circumambulation should be outside it.
If you are unable to perform the two-rak`ah prayer after Tawaf at Maqam Ibrahim, you can perform it any place in the mosque. Some people insist on performing it at the Maqam, disturbing the smooth movement of the pilgrims; this is not a proper act.
Note also that what is obligatory in Tawaf is just making the seven rounds, starting and ending with the Black Stone and keeping the Ka`bah on your left side. The supplications mentioned above, kissing the Black Stone or pointing at it, touching the Yemeni corner, praying two rak`ahs after Tawaf, etc. are recommended. Your Tawaf is not damaged if you missed any of them.

3. Sa`i


Do We Need Another Season of Hajj?

The next step in your Umrah is to make Sa`i between As-Safa and Al-Marwah mounts. If you feel tired after performing Tawaf, you can take a break before heading to As-Safa to start Sa`i. Wudu’ is not necessary for Sa`i. When you are ready, do the following steps:

a. Head to As-Safa. When you are about to reach it, recite the following verse:

{Inna As-Safa wal-Marwata min sha`airi-llah} (Al-Baqarah 2:158)

Surely As-Safa and Al-Marwah are among the signs appointed by Allah

b. Then say “I start my Sa`i from the place which Allah mentioned first” (that is, As-Safa mentioned in the above verse).

c. Ascend As-Safa. It is easy nowadays to ascend both As-Safa and Al-Marwah; they are paved and covered with marble. In addition, the two mounts are not that high, and you need not climb to their top. You just have to walk back and forth the full distance between these two points. If any part of this distance is left untraversed, the Sa`i will remain incomplete. This requires ascending even a small part of both mounts, but it is recommended that you go up until you are able to see the Ka`bah.

d. Face the Ka`bah and say

🤲 La ilaha illa Allah, Allahu Akbar.

🕋 La ilaha illa Allah wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahu al-mulku wa lahu al-hamdu wa huwa `ala kulli shai’in qadir

🤲 La ilaha illa Allah wahdah, anjaz wa`dah, wa nasar `abdah, wa a`az jundah wa hazam al-ahzab wahdah.

There is no god but Allah, Allah is the Greatest.

There is no god but Allah. He has no partners. To Him belong the sovereignty and all praise. He has power over all things.

There is no god but Allah. He has fulfilled His promise, given victory to His servant, and He alone defeated the confederates.

e. Start performing the Sa`i by walking from As-Safa to Al-Marwah. The distance between the two mounts is about 420 meters. If you are a male, it is recommended that you hasten between the two green signs. On reaching Al-Marwah, ascend it, face the Ka`bah, and repeat what you said on As-Safa. You have now completed one of the seven parts of Sa`i.

f. Go back to As-Safa, walking easily. Again, if you are male, hasten on reaching the green sign.

g. Keep on remembering Allah and supplicating Him while going between As-Safa and Al-Marwah.

h. Repeat the same steps in each of the seven parts. Going from As-Safa to Al-Marwah is reckoned as one part, and the return to Al-Safa is another part. Sa`i, therefore, begins with Al-Safa and ends at Al-Marwah.

4. Shaving or Cutting the Hair

Just one step is remaining, that is shaving or cutting the hair on your head. If you are a male, you should have your hair either completely shaved or shortened. You are advised to shorten your hair if you intend to make Hajj shortly after Umrah (tamattu` mode). That is because you are going to shave or shorten it as part of your Hajj. If you are a female, you should shorten your hair slightly.

4 Ideias de Sucos Emagrecedores Gostosos e Fáceis Leia mais

Quando se trata da luta contra a balança, qualquer ajuda é bem-vinda. Além de seguir uma dieta equilibrada e estar em dia com os exercícios, é interessante procurar algumas receitas que, incorporadas aos hábitos alimentares diários, auxiliam no processo de perda de peso.

Sucos emagrecedores
Sucos emagrecedores


Uma das práticas que pode auxiliar esse momento é a ingestão de Quitosana PSYLLIUM. Eles contêm diversos nutrientes, vitaminas e minerais que, além de ajudar no emagrecimento, contribuem para a manutenção de uma boa saúde.

1. Suco de pêra
O suco natural de pêra possui nutrientes essenciais para o organismo como a vitamina C, que tem papel na produção de colágeno (substância importante para tecidos do corpo humano como a pele, tendão, ossos e cartilagem), é importante no processo de cicatrização, ajuda na produção dos glóbulos vermelhos, tem função essencial nas defesas naturais do organismo e ação antioxidante, além de proteger as células contra os radicais-livres. É bom registrar que a falta da vitamina C afeta a resistência às infecções e a sua carência causa o escorbuto, uma doença que traz cansaço extremo, dores e alterações nas gengivas.

A bebida também é rica em fósforo, que possui papel importante na formação de ossos e dentes, em magnésio, que diminui o risco de envelhecimento precoce, melhora o funcionamento cardíaco, ajuda a limpar as artérias, diminui os problemas da hipertensão, na prevenção de complicações do diabetes e mantém os ossos saudáveis, e em potássio, que é importante no processo de contração muscular e um componente útil para a pressão arterial.

Confira abaixo a receita do suco emagrecedor de pêra:

Ingredientes:

Duas peras maduras;
Um copo de água filtrada;
Adoçante, mel ou açúcar para adoçar.
Modo de preparo:

Lavar bem as frutas, tirar as sementes e cortar em pedaços. Bater no liquidificador com a água por aproximadamente 30 segundos, ou até a fruta ficar completamente triturada. Passar por uma peneira, adoçar com o mel ou açúcar e servir com cubos de gelo.

Suco emagrecedor com beterraba, maçã e cenoura
Além de experimentar os sucos emagrecedores feitos a partir de uma fruta só, há como misturar esses alimentos em uma bebida. Um exemplo disso é o suco feito com beterraba, maçã e cenoura, e até algas secas. Ele une o auxílio no processo de digestão da maçã e da cenoura, a eficácia da alga para a circulação sanguínea e a redução do apetite que as algas trazem. Confira a receita:

Ingredientes:

1 beterraba;
Meia maçã;
Quatro cenouras;
Uma pequena porção de algas secas.
Modo de preparo:

Coloque a beterraba, a maçã e as cenouras em uma centrífuga. Depois despeje a mistura obtida no liquidificador e acrescente a pequena porção de algas secas. Bata e sirva.

Suco de melancia com abacaxi e gengibre
Esse suco emagrecedor une três ingredientes com propriedades que auxiliam a perda de peso. A melancia é diurética, antioxidante, proporciona a sensação de saciedade quando é consumida antes das refeições, pode reduzir a vontade de comer doces e melhorar a hipertensão.

O abacaxi também é diurético, reduz o colesterol ruim, colabora no processo digestivo e melhora a prisão de ventre. Por sua vez, o gengibre melhora a digestão, ajuda na redução de colesterol e triglicerídeos, fortalece o sistema imunológico e é antioxidante. Segue a receita de um dos mais poderosos sucos emagrecedores abaixo:

Ingredientes:

Uma fatia média de melancia;
Uma fatia média de abacaxi;
Uma rodela de gengibre fresco;
Gelo.
Modo de fazer:

Coloque os ingredientes no liquidificador e bata. Sirva o suco.

A sugestão é que o suco seja ingerido antes das refeições para diminuir o apetite e que ele não seja guardado de um dia para o outro.

Suco de maçã com kiwi
A maçã e o kiwi são duas frutas que também possuem propriedades que ajudam no emagrecimento e contribuem com o bom funcionamento do organismo. A maçã consegue reduzir o apetite, melhora a prisão de ventre, possui efeito antioxidante, reduz o risco de doenças cardiovasculares e ajuda no controle e redução do colesterol.

Já o kiwi é anti-inflamatório, também tem efeito antioxidante, melhora a função intestinal, auxilia a reduzir o colesterol ruim e melhora o sistema imunológico. Veja a receita a seguir:

Ingredientes:

Duas maçãs;
Um kiwi;
300 ml de água.
Modo de preparo:

Descascar o kiwi e retirar as sementes das maçãs. Com a centrífuga, colocar as maçãs e extrair o suco puro. Colocar o suco da maçã, os 300 ml de água e o kiwi no liquidificador. Bater e servir.

Caso não tenha a centrífuga, basta bater todos os ingredientes no liquidificador e servir.

Benefícios e vantagens dos sucos emagrecedores
A inclusão dos sucos emagrecedores traz uma série de benefícios para quem deseja ou precisa emagrecer. Um deles é a prevenção da fome. Isso porque os sucos naturais oferecem ao corpo uma série de nutrientes necessários. Assim, quando não há falta desses nutrientes, a pessoa não sentirá tanta fome e poderá evitar com mais facilidade beliscar besteirinhas durante o dia.

Outro ponto importante é a facilidade. Não tem como dar a desculpa de pressa ou falta de tempo para preparar os sucos emagrecedores, pois geralmente eles não levam muito tempo para serem feitos. Além disso, com a proximidade da verão e do calor, um suco natural bem gelado também ajuda a refrescar.

Ingerir alimentos naturais evita que o corpo fique longe de substâncias presentes em alimentos processados que contribuem para o ganho de peso. Incorporando os sucos emagrecedores naturais à dieta, evita-se a exposição a esse tipo de substância.

Tomar um suco natural feito a partir de uma fruta ou vegetal pode ser mais saboroso que comer o alimento cru. Dessa maneira, pode ser mais fácil ingerir comidas mais saudáveis que não têm o gosto tão atraente.

O costume de ingerir bebidas ricas em nutrientes essências para o organismo também pode ser vantajoso para a obtenção de energia do corpo humano. Quando os sucos emagrecedores passam a fazer parte da vida – e do cardápio – de uma pessoa, é provável que ela fique mais disposta e animada para ir até a rua e praticar atividades físicas.

How Should Shoes Actually Fit?

How Should Shoes Actually Fit?

The Wall Street Journal’s senior style reporter Elizabeth Holmes Opens a New Window.  recently started her column Opens a New Window. Shop Dior Homme Sneakers  by asking a simple question: “When was the last time you had your foot measured to check your shoe size?” I promptly answered in my head and also possibly aloud, “Well, when my foot last stopped growing. Why would I need to do it again? I’m a grown adult human who pays the majority of my bills on time. I think I know how to buy and wear shoes.”







Apparently not. Holmes’s article goes on to explain how our feet have grown an average of two sizes since the 1970s in order to support us as the species grows taller, which is changing how shoes are designed, made, and sold by older, established brands. She also cites a recent U.K. study of more than 2,000 similarly grown adults, which proves that while sitcoms and stereotypes suggest it’s women who choose style over comfort, about a third of men are also wearing shoes that don’t properly fit them; a choice that’s not only uncomfortable, but can actually deform your toes and feet over time. Shit.

So after trying on every pair in my closet, many of which are curiously worn out in the same spot on the outside of each foot, I asked the experts how our shoes should actually fit.

“Generally you should have about a half-inch of space between your longest toe and the leather of the shoe,” says Tom Florsheim Jr., CEO of his family’s 122-year-old brand. Opens a New Window.  “Your foot shifts when you stand up, so you want to ensure it fits while you’re on your feet.”

Pinching the toe is a common practice, but Florsheim suggests you also slide an index finger behind your heel. If it doesn’t fit, go a size up; if it slides into the shoe easily, you should probably drop a half- to full-size. Even then, some stores will try to make the sale by convincing you that, while the shoe might feel tight, it will stretch and break-in as you wear it. And that’s true, but only barely, and something you should never rely on.


“If a shoe isn’t comfortable to begin with, it is never going to be,” Florsheim adds. “Shoes stretch in particular ways that are predictable because of the way your foot moves, but changes will be marginal. And do not expect the shoe to stretch length-wise.”

Regardless of how long you’ve been buying and wearing the same pair of shoes in the same size, if you want the best fit, you should get your feet measured in store about once a year. “Your foot changes throughout your lifetime, so it is always good to get it correct when purchasing new shoes,” adds Brad Hren of Ben Sherman footwear. Opens a New Window.



It might take an extra few minutes to corral someone for help, but shoes that fit correctly will also last longer, feel better, and generally improve your way of life each day.

“A shoe should always feel as good as it looks. Otherwise it’s not worth the purchase.”

Six more tips for buying your next pair of shoes:


1. Wear the same type of sock to the store that you’ll be wearing with the particular shoe. A thick white tube sock or thin dress sock can sway the fit more than you think.

2. Width is often as important as length, so make sure the shoe fits in every direction.

3. Shop for shoes at the end of the day when your feet have already expanded.

4. If you fall in love with a pair that’s slightly too big, try them on with insoles.

5. If your feet are different sizes, make sure to measure the larger one for best fit.

6. If you’re not sure about how a particular brand fits when purchasing online, don’t be afraid to buy two and plan to send one back. At this point, shoe companies are almost counting on it, so return shipping is usually free.

5 Farmers Who Prove Smart Agriculture Can Make You Rich

5 Farmers Who Prove Smart Agriculture Can Make You Rich

Drought! Loans! Untimely rains! Low market prices! It often seems like farmers have endless suffering in their lives.

Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why none of us wants our kids to become a farmer. Puppies for sale Instead, we all want them to immerse themselves in law or medical books so they can make their careers a big success.

But are these career options the only way to be successful? Definitely not. This Kisan Diwas, let’s see why even farming too can be quite rewarding – both mentally and financially. Here are five people in India who prove this to be true:

1. Pramod Gautam:




Meet Pramod, a former automobile engineer who switched to farming in 2006, and now gets a yearly turnover of a crore, after implementing a radically different method of cultivation.

In 2006, after feeling unsatisfied in his job as an automobile engineer, Pramod abandoned engineering and decided to give farming an earnest shot on his 26-acre ancestral land.

Initially, Pramod faced his share of challenges. He planted white groundnuts and turmeric but reaped no benefits.

Availability of labour was another big issue as workers preferred to migrate to cities and work in factories. Pramod decided to switch to other crops and modern farm equipment, which were not so labour intensive. An example of such types of equipment used by some Indian farmers is the driverless tractor technology – developed by Mahindra for such situations.

Incidentally, farmers like Pramod can make such choices now since, unlike before, they do not have to buy all the equipment. Even with a low budget, they can rent farm equipment using apps like Trringo.

In 2007-08, Pramod switched wholly to horticulture. He planted oranges, guavas, lemons, sweet limes, raw bananas and Toor Dal. Pramod also decided to start his own mill.

Pramod sells the processed and unpolished pulses under the brand name of ‘Vandana’.  He has an annual turnover of about Rs. 1 crore from his dal mill and an additional Rs 10-12 lakh from horticulture, which is much more than what he was earning as an engineer!

2. Sachin Kale:



Like Pramod, Sachin is a mechanical engineer from Nagpur who started his career by working at a power plant and rapidly rose to the top over the years. In 2013, Sachin left his luxurious life in Gurgaon, where he was working as a manager for Punj Lloyd and getting a hefty salary of Rs 24 lakh per annum. He shifted to Medhpar to become a farmer.

Talking about challenges, Sachin says: “Everything was a challenge, as I had absolutely no clue about farming. I had to learn everything from tilling the land to sowing the seeds.”

Sachin invested his 15-year-old provident fund in setting up a clean energy model where his farm was useful all year round and gave a maximum of profit.

In 2014, Sachin launched his own company, Innovative AgriLife Solutions Pvt. Ltd., which helped farmers with the contract farming model of farming. Today, Sachin’s company is helping 137 happy farmers working on 200 acres of land and drawing a turnover of approximately Rs 2 crore.

3. Harish Dhandev:


Another engineer, Harish left his government job to take up Aloe Vera farming in Rajasthan – which proved highly successful, earning him crores.

Once he decided to farm on his ancestral land in Jaisalmer, one of the first things that Harish did was to get his soil tested by the agricultural department.

“The agriculture department suggested I grow crops like Bajra, Moong or Gawar – crops that require less water. They did not suggest growing Aloe Vera, in spite of the fact that we were already cultivating it, because of a lack of market opportunities for the crop in the Jaisalmer area,” says Harish.



However, Harish did his own research online through resources like MyAgriGuru, which connects farmers with agri-experts across the country to allow an exchange of ideas. Harish discovered that if he set his sight further afield and used online portals to get to national and international markets, he could easily sell his produce well.

Harish’s initial 80,000 saplings quickly grew in number to seven lakh. Within six months Harish managed to get ten clients for his Aloe Vera within Rajasthan itself. But soon discovered that they, in turn, were selling the extracted pulp at much higher prices. So he trained his farm labourers to extract the pulp, giving them all some extra income.

Over the years, Harish has bought more land and now grows Aloe Vera over a hundred acres. His company, Dhandev Global Group, is located in Dhaisar, 45 kilometres from Jaisalmer in Rajasthan and his turnover ranges between Rs. 1.5 to 2 crore.

Through the above three stories, you may believe that only educated farmers can be successful. But that is hardly the case.

4. Vishwanath Bobade:



A farmer from Bahirwadi, Vishwanath’s village is in the drought-prone Beed district of Maharashtra. However, he has earned Rs 7 lakh from farming on just one acre of land!

Vishwanath decided to give multi-cropping a try, and he also figured out that he could increase his crop by building a wire fence and planting creepers and climbers on them.

Vishwanath also installed a pipeline with his first-year profits to ensure sprinklers watered his plants. He has also picked up farming methods like raised-bed farming and mulching over the years, which has proved to be beneficial.

Indeed, Vishwanath takes help of only two labourers at his farm. He and his wife work day and night to take care of the plants and hence the cost of production is less, giving them better profits.

5. Rajiv Bittu:



Rajiv is a part-time Chartered Accountant and a full-time farmer. And according to him, he earns more from farming than his chartered accountancy firm!

After his three-year-old daughter refused to mingle with farmers during one of his visits to his ancestral village, Rajiv decided to take up farming to change her views. His first step was to lease some land in Kuchu village, 32 km away from Ranchi.

As he did not have the funds to pay rent for the land, he offered the landlord 1/3rd of the produce he grew. And thus his journey into agriculture began. He made use of the latest technology, like drip irrigation and mulching, to get a maximum yield at his farm.
