What started at Anandwan with 50 acres of barren quarry land, no water and no prospects is now a huge agricultural venture spread across all MSS, Warora projects. Anandwan uses around 50 acres for agriculture and Somnath uses a mammoth share of its land, more than 600 acres for agriculture.

MSS, Warora undertakes Intensive Modern Farming. The farms here produce a huge variety of food crops. These include soy, paddy, tur, wheat, eggplant, spinach, fenugreek, tomatoes, radishes, chilly, cabbage, oranges, bananas, guavas and mangoes to name a few. The farms employ low-input, organic farming techniques including intercropping and crop rotation to maintain sustainable and affordable agricultural systems. Despite being in the Vidharba region of Maharashtra, infamous for its drought prone conditions and farmer suicides, agriculture at MSS, Warora thrives due to various sustainable farming techniques and water management systems like the check dams and man-made lakes.

MSS, Warora has always been ahead of the curve. Happiness and mental health are valued along with dignity of labour and life. Flowers are cultivated here with the idea that their beauty helps bring positivity and happiness to the entire field and to the village as a whole. It is smart economics as well. The demand for flowers is on the rise as its potential per hectare is more than field crops. Beautiful flowers like sunflowers, marigolds etc. are cultivated here.

Vegetables - Self-sufficiency is what MSS, Warora aspires towards. Vegetables are primarily cultivated for internal consumption. The excess is sold in the local markets nearby. Many varieties of vegetables are grown here on an annual and seasonal basis like okra, eggplant, cucumber etc.

Fruits - Fruits are high on nutrients and it is important to include them in one’s diet. However, it is often an ignored part of a healthy diet. We cultivate various types of fruits like bananas, guavas and specially the famous Nagpur mandarins. For us, it is important to ensure that our residents get a balanced and quality diet.

The fodder provided to cattle directly influences the percentage of fat, protein and other nutrients in the milk. Dr. Vikas Amte started the ‘Rid the weed and plant the feed’ movement in Anandwan to begin cultivation for high protein fodder. This feed is special because it uses very little water to grow and results in phenomenal milk rich in nutrients.

Agriculture was the primary focus when Anandwan was established as Baba aimed for MSS, Warora to be a self-sufficient organization. Considering most of the patients had an agricultural background, the land was cultivated with various grains. Modern agriculture is practiced. However, the farming methods used are sustainable in nature. Paddy cultivation is the primary focus, as it was traditionally grown here. Additionally grains like wheat, tur etc are also cultivated.

Fertile black cotton soil along with healthy water management and conservation systems like the check dams and man-made lakes make it possible for us to cultivate a water intensive crop in the Vidharbha region of Maharashtra. High quality cotton is grown and then subsequently sold.

Anandwan’s dairy was established in 1951 when Baba Amte used Vinoba Bhave’s donation to buy 1 lame cow. This cow served to provide milk for the patients and fulfill their dietary requirements.

The excess was sold with the hope of bringing Anandwan into contact with the outside world. Since then, the dairy has developed rapidly and expanded into one of our biggest departments. Regular milk testing for fat content, glucose, protein, water, minerals etc. is conducted here to maintain the purity of the milk. The natural waste in this department is used to create biogas.

Special fish are bred in the lake where bio-waste is deposited. The fish act on the matter and treat the water thus removing any harmful components and converting them into harmless material. This keeps the lake clean. These fish can also be consumed.

Chickens have been kept in the dairy. They eat insects, ticks etc and help maintain the health of the animals. They also produce eggs, which are then sold.
