  • Improved agricultural practices and Soil/Moisture Conservation project: Input linkages for seeds, pesticides, fertilizers and other required items was provided to farmers. Support was provided to federation to follow-up and monitor the implementation of Agricultural PoP by farmers and ideal demonstration plots were set up to be used for training of registered farmers on different stages of agricultural activity.
  • Formation of Farmer Field schools (FFs): During FY16, 50 Farmers Field schools were established where crop wise training was imparted to them. Cultivation of wheat by Zero tillage for improved agriculture, proper caring for wheat crop – anticipated problems and solutions, adherence with package of practices, soil test and required treatment, weeds control, etc. were also discussed.
  • Production of vermi compost: 10 Units of vermi compost bed with 10 farmers were formed. This proved a structural work for the betterment of soil as well as improved knowledge for farmers, which encouraged them to go for organic farming which not only increased the fertility but life of the soil too.

In the first trip, they got an opportunity to visit MBRI, where they shared knowledge about cultivation by scientific methods.
