New Delhi [Naveen Jain]. A small effort growing from a small place can prove to be of great help in changing the face of the world’s agriculture, it is a sleeping truth. When this truth awakens, then it also awakens the world that yes, I am Beej-Purusha, who had changed the face of the Green Revolution in the then an agricultural country like India, which was called hybrid seed or Varna hybrid seed. The name of the missing city from which this seed reached the global plane of the Marathwada region of Maharashtra is Jalna alias the cradle of gold. By the way, Lakshmi remained kind to Jalna due to trade, business, and industry, but since the color of hybrid seed. The successful experiment took place, since then, not only in this city, but the land across the country became factories running in three shifts of different grains, fruits, and vegetables. The interesting fact is that the inventor of this hybrid seed was not an erudite agricultural scientist.
His name was Badriseth Barwale, who became famous as Badri Seth, and who was later awarded the Padma Bhushan. In the 75th year of independence, when we are remembering such eminent personalities from across the country who did wonders in their respective fields, then the self. It is expedient to remember Badriseth Barwale because his efforts brought remarkable relief from starvation in the country. That day the date was Ganesh Chaturthi. Nick’s name was Badri. A total of four brothers, and two sisters. Gone are the days of passing through storms, but Ganeshji’s shadow remained from birth to trouble. As a child, wearing patched clothes, groceries, and worked in clothes shops. Sell powder, and balloons. In the meantime, due to some reason, he went to the house of Bhikubhai Barwale, a prosperous farmer of Jalna. His father’s real name was Jaikishan Kagliwal, but Badri’s new name was Sanskar Badrinarayan Barwale.
At that time Jalna came under the Nizamshahi of Hyderabad. At that time, the Nizam refused to meet in independent India, so Badri, who was studying college in Hyderabad on the call of Sardar Patel, came to Jalna and led the student movement. Together with the comrades, tried to blow up a bridge with a bomb. When caught, he was sentenced to ten months in jail. With the independence of the country, Badriseth’s dreams got new impetus, which became the lamp post of his path to being a seed-man. He founded his own company on November 11, 1964, which was named Mahiko aka Maharashtra Hybrid Seeds Corporation. Mana It is said that this company was the first attempt to do farming in the country with biotechnology. The farmers of that time were passionate about the use of indigenous seeds, but Badriseth, under the guidance of Dr. Norman E, Borlaug, not only sowed the seeds of Mexican wheat in his own fields but also distributed it to other farmers.
He explained to those farmers that in the beginning the cost of these foreign seeds may be high, but eventually the crop production from these seeds will be manifold. This will make the farmers happy and the country will be saved from starvation. The same thing happened. It is believed that if agricultural scientists saved the country from starvation through the Green Revolution, then Badriseth did it on the ground.
He kept saying that the possibilities in Indian agriculture development are endless — Sky is limit Badrinarayan Barwale explained to the farmers that with hybrid seeds it is necessary to take training in proper breeding of the crop. Developed and installed immediately. The length of that ladyfinger was seen to be 9 inches. To meet Barwale in this regard, the then Central Government from New Delhi sent well-known vegetable breeder Dr. Sardar Harbhajan Singh to meet Badri Seth. The government was so impressed by his invention that newspaper headlines about him appeared – Moneylanders Became Seidman (a moneylender turned seed man).
When Badriseth was given due confidence by the Indian farming society, Badriseth traveled to many countries, where he studied daily farming, poultry farming. He understood the modern farming of almonds, lettuce, tomato. He used to stay in the families of non-resident Indian farmers instead of hotels there and eat vegetarian food there. Once when he was sent by the central government on a visit to some countries, he had to speak in a meeting that now the dream of green revolution has come true in India. Will also provide cheap food grains to the countries. Badriseth Barwale has proved to be true, because recently India has sent 50 thousand metric tons of food grains to Afghanistan alias Taliban, and our warehouse is so full of food grains that the export of food grains has increased a lot this year compared to the year gone by.
Badriseth is also called Bhishma Pitamah of hybrid seeds. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2001. He was awarded Marathi Vigyan Parishad, World Food Award, D. He was also awarded the honorary degrees of Litt. He passed away on July 24, 2017. Presently his son Rajendra alias Raju Barwale handles the business of his company Mahiko from Mumbai.
