Mr. Avinash Salunke Founder of Pestomatic Controls & Barefooter School. I am Avinash son of Maratha agri-labour Nivrutti, who was working for co-operative sugar factory for whole life. Avinash took education in village through earn & learn scheme in Maharashtra. Became agriculture graduate from MPKV Rahuri in 1991, I got trained in Dec 2002 at Pune Agri College. Dr Chandra Sekra from manage motivated for entrepreneurship. I left stable job of good salary & devoted to provide lab to land services in rural sectors. I got help from Manage & NIPHM several times. He started Sheti Davakhana & Pestomatic Controls as initial Agriclinics activity. For survival of family members started providing Plant protection & pest control services. Along with this I am Gardener, Entomologist, Fumigator, versatile experienced extension worker. Currently I have 2 pvt Ltd companies. 3 proprietary firms. I have good have earned good money due to my degree & training. Thanks to Manage GOI for starting such a wonderful course that gave me opportunity for exposure.
I dreamed to start potential skill based school in every village. This task is not difficult because already Manage has trained over 16000 people. These Agripreneurs are motivated & devoted to provide Lab to Land services. Today bare footer is running several (60+) need based training courses. The Certification of recognition to small course is given independently. If this certificate gets any recognition or identity it may help farmers to get some business loan. Bank will surely foreword to help. I know this can’t stop suicide in Maharashtra this is very small activity by very small person at very small place. But if we get some exposure we are sure that we can bring change.
