Pearl Farming in India

Pearl Farming in India


“The demand for pearls is high in India, but it is mostly met through imports,” Dubey said. “The market has been monopolised by China and Japan. Through our training, we want to increase pearl farming in India. The idea is to use indigenous freshwater mussels found in rivers, lakes or ponds to develop pearls. Mussels are available everywhere locally, but people don’t know that pearls can be cultured in mussels.”

To grow a Ganesha-shaped pearl, a Ganesha-shaped object is inserted into a live mussel. The shell fish are then tied in nets and are kept hanging in a pond or river. The mussels are fed with algae, cow dung and groundnut for a year, by which time the pearls are ready to be harvested.

“There is enough information on the methods of pearl farming in the country. Only knowledge on how to operate the shells is lacking,” Manwani said.

“We hope to get fishermen to culture pearls. It can be done along with fish farming. While cultivating 1,000 mussels, about 300 to 400 mussels can be cultured for pearls. The cost of culturing one pearl is Rs 12 to Rs 15, but it fetches a price of Rs 250 to Rs 1,000.”

Pearl Farming Information
by: Kari

A dedicated couple helps villagers augment their income through backyard pearl culture.

While surfing the Internet, Jaishankar, a progressive farmer of Tetari village in Begusarai district of Bihar, came to know of Ashok Manwani, a pioneer in design pearl farming.

He lost no time inviting Manwani to his village to train under him. That was in 2009. Jaishankar has since harvested over 10,000 pearls in his own pond by breeding mussels from the Budi Gandak river.

"I expect to sell them in one lot to a Delhi trader, who will be visiting the village later this month."

Jaishankar has even uploaded a video of his work on YouTube.

Another farmer, Suyog Kawle, met Manwani in 2007 at an agriculture exhibition in Gadchiroli and soon trained under him. Kawle, who belongs to village Ballarpur in Chandrapur district of Maharashtra, started collecting mussels from the nearby Wainganga river and these are now mushrooming in a pond constructed by him. He is yet to explore the market, but sells his pearls to the other farmers he meets at agriculture meets and exhibitions. He says the pearls sell for ₹250-1,500, depending on their quality.

Like Kumar and Kawle, more than 500 farmers have trained under Manwani and are today earning from either pearl culture or simply breeding and selling mussels.

Born into an agricultural family, Manwani had read an article about freshwater pearl farming when he was in college. Fascinated, he began experimenting on his own. He collected mussels from Morna river in Akola district but failed to develop pearls.

Finally, in 2000, he underwent training at a pearl culture institute in Bhubaneswar. A year later he started teaching the art. In 2003, he met Kulanjan Dubey and together they started experimenting with different techniques for pearl culture, despite having no outside funding.

"It was not easy. Sometimes we lived in the jungles and practised on different species of mussels," he recalls. The duo developed simple tools like a mussel opener and a wooden mussel stand to cultivate designer pearls.

They continued with their research for several years and, at the same time, created awareness about pearl farming among villagers in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh.

Manwani and Dubey (now married to each other) have developed a simple technique that farmers can easily adopt. Manwani says that fish farming alongside pearl farming can increase the production of mussels. He wants more farmers to know that pearls come not just from the sea, but can also be cultivated in every village where there is a river or a pond or other water body.

The Bioved Research Institute of Agriculture and Technology in Shringverpur, near Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, invited the couple to offer training at its premises.

"We are developing different kinds of designer pearls instead of the usual round ones. It takes longer to produce and is more complicated. Designs in the shape of deities like Ganesha, Lakshmi, Hanuman, Lord Buddha and other shapes like a heart or cross are easy to do." They even use mussel shells to make eco-friendly handicrafts like incense stands, mobile phone holders and other showpieces.

The couple has received several awards for their innovative work in pearl farming. Krishi Vigyan Kendras now invite them as resource persons.

Not interested in running a business of his own, Manwani says his mission is to see that even the poorest of farmers can earn through pearl culture. "That will be the ideal reward for the years of struggle my wife and I have put in," he says unassumingly.

Hello Abhishek,

Thank you for your request for full details about pearl farming but I am not the one to teach, since I have never done it myself.

Best to contact a pearl farm directly and ask if they will mentor you and teach you.

I'm sure there is profit in the experience if done correctly and wisely.

All the best to you!
