Richard Rebello. It is indeed difficult to believe that the farm which is now full of vegetation, tall green grass, cashew nut trees, coconut, pepper, pineapples, areca nut, banana, was once a barren land without water. The two borewells and the three open wells in the farm are now full of water.

Comments : Sir Richard Rebello is a  role model farmer for all . We need to make sure our farmers are educated in these type of agricultural methods which helps us harvest with rain water. Most of our crops get destroyed every year due to lack of water. Rain water harvesting is one of most vital techniques that needs to be adapted . Its not the lack of water that we have , its the lack of techniques the farmers adapt to save and manage water.
