Venkat Iyer was living a fast-paced life in the IT world in Mumbai when he decided to stop and take a long, hard look at where he was headed. Disheartened by his stressful existence in the city, he decided to give it all up and take up organic farming in a small village near Mumbai. But it wasn’t easy. With no experience in agriculture, his journey was fraught with uncertainty. He soon went from negotiating tough clients, strict deadlines and traffic to looking forward to his first bumper crop of moong. As he battled erratic weather conditions and stubborn farm animals, he discovered a world with fresh air and organic food, one where he could lead a more wholesome existence. Recently, his book named “Moong over Microchips: Adventures of a Techie-Turned-Farmer” has been launched, in which he has mentioned all his experience and the adventure he has gone through while the transition was taking place in his life. In the interview with him, he shared his experiences in agriculture while highlighting certain points which are responsible making condition of farmer more stressful and difficult. He himself being an organic farmer mentioned the importance of organic farming.
