With this type of farming we can regenerate our planet and sustainably secure the future of agricultural products and their supply chains.
It was great motivation for team, that CU team has visited field and presented RA certificate to team on 21st December, 2020.
Certification celebration was planned in the Cotton farm. Farmers welcome the CU team with “Khadi Sutar Mala” (A Garland made out of Organic Cotton handmade Yarn) followed by Bhoomi Pujan. Mr. Binay Chaudhari, Chairman CU India, share his views with farmers and AMIHA Agro team on RA. “Now it is time to think on climate smart agriculture as many countries are adopting such practices. The principals are simple, it is not rocket science. Adopting RA principals will secure our future for food, environment, carbon emission, retain water, promote biodiversity and many more benefits. With continuous adoption farmers will get more benefit in net profitability and quality of crop. He shared that in coming future we need to think beyond farmland, crop, and individual profit.
From the roots
25 years young lady shared her experience of RA practices. Since last 4 years she is supporting her father in agriculture. Now with learning of RA she changed some of the farming practices in her farm like use of FYM, no chemical use, inter crop of pulses and border crop of golden flowers and many more. It was not easy for her to convince her father with traditional and rigid mind set of farming, but she could manage it.
“I have felt significant changes in water requirement along with many other benefits on farmland. With the help of Intercropping with pulses I have secure my family’s requirement of protein till 2021.”
