Summary

Enable 5,000 poor tribal households of Udaipur region to shift onto better agriculture practices, and ensuring the resource-poor communities sustainable livelihood and enhance food security.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Agriculture is the main livelihood for more than 70% tribal households. However, low/fragmented landholding, less rainfall, high soil erosion & insufficient infrastructure restrain agriculture productivity. Further, primitive agriculture practices of tribal farmers, particularly less crop diversification, incompatibility between crop selection and resource conditions, intensify the problem. The present agriculture, in process, is incapable of providing the households food security.

How will this project solve this problem?

Introduce tribal farmers to better agriculture practices through trainings, demonstration and exposure visits. Extend technical and financial support to use improved variety seeds, plant fruit trees, cultivate vegetables, and use organic fertilizers.

Potential Long Term Impact

Agriculture will become cost-effective and sustainable in long-term for tribal. Farmers shall grow crops sufficient to meet family needs, along with obtain diverse produces and marketable surplus providing cash income to mitigate crop failure risks.
