Sustainable Agricultural Development

Sustainable agricultural Development

The economic development of the inhabitants of Sundarbans depends solely on agriculture. The most commonly cultivated crops include paddy, chilly, potatoes, beans, tomatoes, dal, etc. The targeted villages have two distinctive seasons for crop cultivation; the first season is from October to January and second season between February to June. Though the agriculture production has improved in Sundarbans over the last decade, it has not yet reached its true potential. For development of sustainable agricultural practices, the organization adopted a few strategies which are: Farmers trainings, Field visit and workshop, Supply IEC materials, Supply seeds, Fertilizers and modern instruments.

Our teams undertook a baseline study to understand the existing agriculture scenario in the identified project sites of Kishori Nagar village. Rural cultivators of Kishori Nagar under Pathar Pratima block in South 24 Parganas district of Sundarbans in West Bengal are the target beneficiaries. The project has been implemented from both community contribution and organization own fund. 50% of the overall beneficiaries under this project were women.
