Initiated discussion for formation of farmers group. Analysis of natural resources, land classification by revenue class, local class and by hydrology completed. Soil and water resources, their special features and constraints of study area identified. Existing farming system documented. He proposed model finalized keeping in view of above stated analysis. Costing of various components of model, calendar of operation documented. During the pilot phase of EVOKATION, the fund received will be used for model development. The overall financial obligation of this EVOKATION is that the system pays for itself over time and that it will be self-sustaining. I expect that up-scaling will ultimately occur by diffusion of the technology and financing through NAREGA. For this to happen, capacity building of stakeholders will be an important activity of the EVOKATION which will lead to successful implementation of the EVOKATION and generation of livelihood in the village itself round the year. It will help in checking migration from villages. Participating farmers will learn specific skills and establish holistic and sustainable solutions to prioritized challenges for different landscape.
