Training, demonstration, exposure trips, etc for more scientific, adaptable and climate friendly agriculture practices with better income through organic and bio-fertilizers and pest controllers. Agriculture is the major, nay only livelihood option of majority population of the area.  Due to deteriorating  soil fertility, declining yield,  receding ground water level, disappearing flora and fauna, disappearing greenery, spiraling cost of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, growing over dependency on agro chemicals, forgotten good old practices of rejuvenation of soil with bio mass and organic manure, declining livestock population and there by non-availability of organic manure, etc. rendered agriculture a gamble.  More and more debt-ridden farmers resort to suicide.  The drought prone area of A.P. mostly go for Dryland agriculture, depending on monsoon.  The evading monsoon further aggravate the pathetic situation.  At this juncture it is highly essential to resort to alternate cost effective methods in agriculture while ensuring enrichment of natural resources and not exploitation of natural resources.

  • Growing organic/bio farmers, agro-forestry, horticulture;
  • Availability of bio and botanical pesticides and fertilizers locally  and at affordable rate;
