Other places where series of awareness workshops are organized

Gram Unnati has also lined up a series of awareness workshops with KVKs across western Uttar Pradesh. Besides UP, Gram Unnati is also launching similar workshops with KVKs in Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Haryana, and Maharashtra.

The awareness workshops would focus on imparting best practices for paddy with an emphasis on the agronomical practices to be followed after sowing as well as looking into opportunities for market linkage.

Lessons taught to farmers

Farmers taught lessons on post-sowing practises such as weed control, fertiliser application, irrigation practise, integrated nutrition management, and pest and disease management during the training session in Bareilly. Farmers were also taught about the proper agronomic procedures to use in Paddy to improve crop quality and overall productivity.

Training will also help in disseminating pertinent new technology being used to support sustainable agriculture, which is good for both farmers and the environment. Even after the training, farmers will continue to receive timely advice and guidance from the Gram Unnati field team to guarantee a robust paddy crop.
