About the Practice
Problem Statement:

build farm bunds to check soil erosion.


Mohanbhai Sagar is a farmer from Vaghada village in Patdi taluka in Surendranagar district in Gujarat. He has developed an equipment to build mud wall quickly around farms. The wall stops rainwater from washing out the soil of farms. All farmers of his village have been using this equipment for several years now. He thought of this because flowing rainwater erodes the soil of farms during the monsoon. Farmers using this equipment do not need to go far to get the soil for their farm because the soil is preserved. This equipment costs Rs 20 to Rs 25. It works on the principle of leverage. The farmers can thus save soil from erosion.
