Challenge

There are 500 poor marginal farmers are living in the project area.All the households belongs to below poverty line (income per household <$2 per day). Agriculture is the major source of livelihood.The paddy is cultivated only for 4 months period during the rainy season.For rest 8 months they left their land vacant due to unavailable of irrigation.The present income is insufficient and all are living under the poverty.The farmers are not able to manage their livelihoods due to poverty condition.

Solution

We will promote the diversification of agriculture i.e vegetable cultivation during rest 8 months. They are already cultivating paddy for 4 months. We will promote the vegetable cultivation with the different inputs of the project and ensure the cultivation of all the lands for rest 8 months where they will get production and income. The income on vegetable production will be 4 times from paddy cultivation. The farmers will get additional income of $1000 per year apart from their normal income.

Long-Term Impact

Additional household Income @ $1000 of 500 marginal farmers will be increased by the project. Different health hazards of farmers will be controlled after getting vegetables in their regular food. Increased/enhanced nutrition (general health) status. Effectively functioning of vegetable cluster organization to provide better marketing chain to the farmers. Increase in the collective bargaining power with the farmers. Increase the production and productivity of the area.
