Agriculture Environmentally Friendly Approaches

Environmentally Friendly Approaches

We support farmers to find a healthy balance between agricultural profitability and environment sustainability.

Solar Pumps for Irrigation

We promote solar irrigation pumps so that farmers can irrigate crops affordably and sustainably - converting solar energy into electricity to run the pumping system, replacing erratic grid supply and pollution-causing diesel-powered versions.

Responsible Use of Chemical Pesticides/

We educate farmers and promote ecofriendly crop production techniques. We also promote mechanical and biological methods of pest and disease management, and meet crop nutrient requirements through bio fertilisers, compost and nutrient recycling.

Enhancing Soil Health & Productivity

We promote practices that help enhance soil health and the organic carbon sequestration of soil, like the use of compost, incorporation of crop residue, minimum utilisation of chemicals, crop rotation, green manure and intercropping. Better soils mean more productive and sustainable agriculture, which protects the soil for future generations.

Water Conservation

We promote water efficient irrigation practices so water can be optimised and farmers can achieve better production. Micro irrigation, optimum use of water as per crop stage and need, ridge and furrow irrigation, alternate furrow irrigation methods and laser leveling are just some of the methods we use. We also work to conserve water by promoting farm ponds, deepening community ponds, and installing farm bunds.

Native Species Plantation on Farms

We promote the planting of native species of trees in and around the farms to enhance the biodiversity and habitat for beneficial organisms that support farming. Native species also support in carbon sequestration and contribute to reducing the impact of climate change.

Crop Residue Management

We work with farmers addressing the challenge of burning crop residue by promoting the in situ or ex situ management practices - mixing of crop residue in soil to help in nutrient recycling, or collecting and selling of non-usable crop residue to provide an additional source of income.
