Land, Farming and Agriculture

Majhaul and its surrounding areas are part of the Kosi River. This makes the land very fertile. The Kosi embankment is only 300 to 500 meter west. The farmers in the village mostly cultivate Dhaan (paddy crop), Makai (Maize/Corn), Gahum (Wheat crop) and Moong (a type of lentils) in their farms. Since the climate of this region is most suitable for Dhaan (the paddy crop),Makai (Maize/Corn) a good crop brings happiness to many farmers in the village. Though, people do try to grow wheat crops, only few farmers get good yields. Most of the farmers have moderate harvest and hence it is not as popular as harvesting of Dhaan (the paddy crop),Makai (Maize/Corn . Instead, maize is the first best crop for the farmers of this village and Dhaan (the paddy crop)is the second. Therefore, they are tempted to grow garma dhaan and makai (maize) crops together apart from harvesting regular crops. The timing of Dhaan harvesting is especially notable as the villagers are happy in general for several reasons. The fresh crop of Dhaan and Makai (Maize/Corn) reaches every home, Whether you are owner of the land, or the farmer or just the harvester. The Dhaan is bound to come to every household. It can be cooked straight or flattened to make Chura which makes an amazing food when combined with fresh Sakkar (Jaggery) and "Dahi" (Curd). In the rainy season (Savan aur Bhado) the whole agriculture land of this village is covered by rain water, so in this season the main food of the villagers fish and some aqua fruits.
