Agricultural improvement

In rural areas, Agriculture and Livestock are the major sources of livelihood while, adherence to traditional agriculture/ dairy practices has resulted in declining profitability from these enterprises. We implement agriculture improvement program for farmers so they adopt latest technology, most appropriate crop, seed, fertliser, pesticide, harvesting technique for better returns from the small and marginal land holdings.


Cattle breeding

Under cattle breed improvement program artificial insemination services are provided for genetic improvement of the future progeny. The milk yields from cross-bred progeny are significantly higher than indigenous stock, generating substantial supplementary incomes from surplus milk sales, paving the way for cattle rearing to emerge as a viable livelihood option.

Skill development

Location specific & market oriented trainings on Mobile repairing, Motor winding, Beautician, Tailoring, etc are imparted to unemployed youths to enhance their entrepreneurial & employability skills.
