I Mr. Ashok Manwani & my wife Mrs. Kulanjan Dubey Manwani, firm INDIAN PEARL CULTURE, both are engaged in doing pearl farming since 15 years.
We are the only farmers who have done design Pearl Culture (farming) in states like Thane (Maharashtra), Bharuch (Gujarat), Bangalore (Karnataka), Begusarai (Bihar), Chitrakoot (Madhya Pradesh), Allahabad ( Uttar Pradesh), & Raipur (Chhattishgarh).
We made the technique easy & simple so that farmers can easily adopt that & can increase/earn their livelihood. Doing fish farming along with Pearl Farming increases the production of mussels.
We all know that Pearls are grown in sea water but in every village there is river, Pond, etc where we find mussels in which the farmers can do Pearl farming or can make handicrafts from the dead animals & can bring a new revolution not only for self but also for his village.
The biggest profit/income for the village is that one mussel filters 40 liter water in a day which means the water will be cleaned automatically & our environment will also be safe. But our farmers are finishing mussles in ignorance as for them it is of no use.
We are doing different design Pearls instead of round as round takes longer time for production & it is complicated whereas designs like Ganesha, Lakshmi, Hanuman, Heart, Cross, 786, Lord
Buddha, etc are easy & comes early in production.
We tried breeding mussels in Gujarat & Bihar on our own without any training from anywhere and we got successful results.
