He has planted a vegetable called hop shoots, which is known as the most expensive vegetable in the world. The price of one kg of this vegetable is as high as one lakh rupees. This young farmer has earned crores of rupees from the production of this vegetable.
Amares Singh, a resident of Aurangabad, Bihar, has successfully grown a vegetable called Hop Shoot. Initially, it has started production of this vegetable in five guntas with the help of Indian Vegetable Research Center. The benefits of this vegetable are many. This vegetable is used to make active pharma ingredients for antibiotics, medicine for diseases like TB and cancer. Its flowers are called hop cones.
Importantly, this vegetable can be produced throughout the year. But March to June is considered the best period. Too much cold affects the yield of this vegetable. Good taxable land is required for the production of this vegetable.
In Europe, this vegetable has been consumed in beer since the eighth century. The cultivation of this vegetable was first started in Germany. It has since spread to other European countries and now to the rest of the world. Now it can be seen that this agriculture started in India through Bihar.
