Issue:

  • Ankuli and Dhepo Sahi villages of Patrapur block are remote area, Govt. officials do not reach to this areas and they lacked knowledge of SRI and cultivated paddy in traditional method.

What was done:

    Conducted training programme on SRI in 2 Gram Panchayats
    Included all the stake holders in this process so as to make more people aware about this method
    5 Beneficiaries were ready and cultivated paddy through SRI
    PMRDF provided hand holding support in this initiative

Impact:

  • Paddy production has increased more than the double
    It has impacted many farmers to adopt SRI
    Work has been scaled up in the villages and Gram Panchayat
