Agriculture sector contributes 15% to country’s GDP. But farmer’s suicide due to agrarian crisis
are plunging the balance between urban and rural economy into chaos. Currently the
indebtedness and inability to sell the crop is one of the major reason of farmer’s suicide. The
farmers do not get the reasonable price of their product which is increasing the gap between
rural development and urban development. Also the country is developing in all sectors but
enhancement of farming methodology and empowerment of farmers are still dawdling on
Being a climate dependent sector, farming is not only affected by the impact of climate
changes, but it's also a significant contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions and climate
adversities. The extravagant resource i.e. Land, is available in abundance but is highly
underutilised and unorganised. Over 80 per cent farmers in India are small land-holders,
owning less than two hectares or less and 60 per cent of the cultivated area. The excess are if
turned into green cover can definitely help to improve the degrading ecosystem Agroforestry is seen as a solution for them to meet the challenges of food, employment and
environment security. It solves both major issues and gives a stable financial resource to farmer’s
and increases green cover as well.
The major objectives of “Project Samrudhi” are as follows:
- To help farmers to increase monetary gains.
- To educate and involve women farmers and widows especially.
- To increase rural green cover and mitigate climate change
