This project is targeted to provide productivity hence income enhancement to small and marginal farmers. The project employs a well-established method of systematic rice intensification (SRI) which will replace the broadcasting method of sowing which is used by the target group due to lack of awareness and ineffective management of local resources. The project will also provide environmental benefits of soil, water & biodiversity conservation and less use of pesticides.
Cumulatively the project benefitted:
Also it shows from the data that:
Over 800 walls were written for the mass awareness campaign, 32 trainings & video show were organized, 1160 pamphlets and brochures were distributed, quality seeds, weeders, markers etc. were provided to the beneficiaries.
This project given its budget and impact is a reflection of ASORD’s ground level reach and connection with the community, and its ability to plan & implement projects while keeping with the economic, geographic & cultural constraints of the region we operate in.
