India is primarily an agrarian economy, but still Indian farmers continue to be among the poorest in the world. With the diverse climatic conditions found and large areas of rich fertile land, India has a lot of potential to become one of the leading producers of various agriculture products. With presence of abundant raw materials in the form of natural resources, India lags far behind in ensuring food security for its own citizens. This state is a combined consequence of various factors, such as lack of advanced scientific methods in agriculture, unavailability of modern machinery to the farmers, lack of electricity in villages and lack of financial support. Moreover, storage and maintenance inefficiency leads to tones of food grains in the country being wasted as they rot in the godowns. Similarly, decisions taken at various stages of cropping by farmers carried out entirely in traditional manner also lead to low yield. Farmers across the country depend more on the practices learnt by their ancestors and take various decisions based on myths.
Solutions By Us
In support of Government policy, Unnat Bharat Abhiyan we seek to support pachayati raj system and grass root voluntary organizations to enable effective installation of new technologies and skill development.We effectively participate in holistic development of villages into G-Villages(Green Village) using ecofriendly sustainable technologies and local resources. The G-Village will create sufficient employment opportunity in the process and will also bring the govt. schemes directly to the people.
We will introduce Climate-Smart Agriculture methods in the rural areas.In these methods, with the help of new technologies available, we can :
- Increase agricultural productivity and incomes from crops, livestock and fish, without having a negative impact on the environment with the help of methods like cross-cultivation, aquaponics etc.
- Reduce the exposure of farmers to short-term risks, while also strengthening their resilience by building their capacity to adapt and prosper in the face of shocks and longer-term stresses.
- Wherever and whenever possible, it will help to reduce and/or remove Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.
We are planning to do this by helping NGOs or approaching villages to have a overall modernization by installing a multitude of small plants. We are getting major projects under one roof which decreases the amount of search required for each individual problems.
We are also providing training in various fields to enthusiasts by organising seminars and lectures by experts in fields and people working in the field.
