He constantly enhanced his knowledge by following the farming innovations propelled by the Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University in Rajendranagar.If regular farming requires investment of ₹50,000 for 60 quintal paddy, Mallikarjun invests only ₹25,000 to get the output, with a gross revenue of ₹1,13,000.
