Improving Production Techniques and Market Knowledge

The project works with women vegetable and fruit farmers, supported by work with the Department of Agriculture Extension and agro-input dealers, to improve the use of fertilizer deep placement (FDP) and protected seedling cultivation with water-saving irrigation, along with other associated good agricultural practices. Furthermore, the project surveys market hubs and works to build producer awareness of evolving market requirements and standards for vegetables and fruits.
