  • 2. Areas we are working atGoalparaKamrupGrameen Sahara
  • 3. Objectives1. To build awareness among the farmers to adopt SRIprinciples for paddy;2. To multiply yield which in turn would lead to enhanceincome for the small and marginal farmers3. To provide firsthand knowledge about SRI4. To improve Socio-economic status of small and marginalfarmers5. To build awareness of farmers to adopt the same techniquein cultivating other crops.6. To mobilize and influence the government institutions tojoin hands.Grameen Sahara

  • 7.  Farmers have been introduced with the Compost Manure through E MTechnology. The farmers have been introduced with some HYVs’ of paddy(Kanaklata, Joimoti, etc.) as well some other selected crops.AGRICULTURE INTERVENTIONGrameen Sahara
  • 8.  High risk of flood, low and static yield characterize therice production Heavy rains during May to August cause flooding andaffecting the winter rice is adversely in the process. More often, the flood wave coincides with the maturingand/or harvesting period of summer and Kharif rice inmany areas and wash away valuable output. The performance of the summer rice (boro) has alsobeen uneven due to its high dependency on the inputavailability, especially irrigation.Major ChallengesGrameen Sahara
  • 9. Features of Proposed Project Areas: The areas fall under the lower Brahmaputra ValleyZone: contributes maximum to the total rice area andproduction in the state of Assam . But the productivityof rice is the least in this zone. Climate is sub-tropical Average rainfall is 2169 mm Average number of rainy days is 95 The district experiences floods of moderate to severeduring monsoon. Economy of the district is an agrarian.( Source)Our Next Planning:Promotion SRI Among the Farmers of Four Different Blocks of GoalparaDistrict of AssamGrameen Sahara
  • 10. Lower Brahmaputra Valley Zone of AssamGrameen Sahara
  • 11. Base line indicators:Production of rice per crop per acre is low (About 700-800 Kg)Normally single cropping practice is in existence.Hardly any of the target farmers are aware about SRI; with theimplementation of the project more and more farmers will be skilled toadopt SRI principles.There is no producer or common interest group, and the farmers clubs arealmost dormant. Producers groups will be in existence to take care offarmers needs in future;Increase in production will be an important indicator for the project;Grameen Sahara

  • 13. 5,000 small and marginal farmers will be benefited byincreased rice production and shall have increased foodsecurity.Increase in production to at least 1.5 times.Adoption of scientific practice in management of waterSRI principle and practices will be adopted by the farmersin case of other crops as well.There will be demonstration effects in the later part in thesurrounding villages of project areas.Expected outcomesGrameen Sahara
