Introduction:

Agriculture is still in crisis, because, farmers are attracted to sell agri lands. Neighboring lands of VOICE Trust’s Managing Trustee are already made into housing plots.

Viability of agriculture as successful economic activity is doubted by many farmers, because, the cost of production has increased but return on investment is decreasing year after year.

Biodiverse Agriculture helps the farmers not only to get higher incomes but also improves soil fertility and enhances nature centric pest control systems.

Special Activities during April –June 2013:

“ STOP SALE OF FARM LANDS;              START BIO - FARMING;       SAVE LANDS FOR POISON FREE FOOD”

 

v  Campaigns to protect agriculture were continued during April – June 2013 with above focus.

v  Multiple cropping and Mixed Cropping Systems were explained to farming groups. (See photos)

v   Hand Book on Bio- Farming discussed in a meeting with Farmers Reps on June 22 .(See photos)
