In early 1960s Mr. Mahadeo Shahra created awareness on the potential of soya crop amongst the farmers in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. He was instrumental in bringing up a small green revolution in the state, by introducing and encouraging Soyabean cultivation on a commercial scale. Shahra family was in the business of commodities trading and subsequently entered the business of ginning and oil milling. The family’s efforts, along with that of the others, resulted in soya revolution in Madhya Pradesh. Today Madhya Pradesh is considered as Soya bowl of the country. India has emerged as the fifth largest producer of Soyabean in the World.
