clear the cotton farm
Narsangbhai Mori is a farmer from Kaliyana village in Viramgam taluka of the Ahmedabad district in Gujarat. He has developed kantiu (a custom made plough) to clear the farm after the cotton plucking is over. Mori developed this kantiu to quickly clear large farms before monsoon starts. Initially this had six to seven teeth but now he keeps only three. Instead of manually collecting the dry cotton twigs, he uses bullocks to drag the kantiu and clears the field fast. This kantiu costs Rs.1,000 to Rs.1,200 and 90% of farmers in the village use it.
