What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

It is shocking that 25% of agri lands have been sold last 7 years. Main reasons are non availability of inputs and employees and lack of viable technologies. Continuity of family members is possible only through Youth involvement. But, Youth are not encouraged to take up Agriculture. So, farm families are forced to sell agri lands. Food security is threatened. Family unity is affected. Economic sustainability is destabilized. Society at large is in trouble.

How will this project solve this problem?

6668 Youth trained by Project # 6265 from October 2010 to June 2014. 6 youth per village have been motivated to involve in preparing and marketing Bio Inputs (Manures/Pest Repellents).1332 Youth will set up Bio Input Units in 222 villages and supply Manures/Pest Repellents to enable farm families to achieve success in agriculture. Fear in minds of farmers will be dispelled by joining of 1332 Youth. More Youth will be attracted to Agriculture both from employability to Youth

Potential Long Term Impact

Agriculture was main occupation for over two-thirds population. Lack of regular employmentsled to huge migration resulting in instability in families. Alternate jobs are detrimental. Revival of Agriculture will help families to sustain economically. Population will get good food, better environment. Youth will become leaders in viable technologies. Innovations by Youth will save agriculture in remaining 75% lands. Value addition to agri produce will involve others in income generation
