Harvey Macmillan Farmer
Skilled farmer with experience of decades. I have worked on the fields since I was a child and the land has been my teacher. I have learnt a lot about crop growth, cultivation, fertilization and maintaining the fields. I also have knowledge of different crops and how to handle them. As a farmer and business owner, I have good relations in the market. I wish to work for a farm that is owned by private sector for consumer products.

Farmer (Jan 1997 to Present) 24 Years
• Started work on the family farm at the age of 14. I was responsible for assisting the farmers on duty. I started work by watering the fields. This required long hours and dedication. • I also learned the techniques of seed plantation and ploughing. Repair workof pipes and tubewell were also learned at the farm. • I was responsible for some daily chores like spraying pesticides before cropping. • Over the years I learned a lot about the water sprinklers and gradually introduced newer methods to increase yield. • I was in charge of the crop fertilizer treatment and also assisted the cultivation and selection of vegetables for supply. • It was my duty to learn new technologies by attending farmer lessons given by the government's agriculture department.
