Indian Farmers are facing challenges for sustaining agriculture in the region due to climate change and soil condition. Hence, farmers are applying excess fertilizers and pesticides to overcome the challenges in order to get higher production. The community being vulnerable to a number of emerging issues leads to loss of livelihood and migration in near future. Therefore, the proposed program aims towards making the community resilient and adapt to the changing climate at the same time enhance their incomes. There is a need to boost the farm income by helping the farmers right from the land preparation to package of practice. The proposed project shall capacitate marginalized farming households directly in villages to adopt climate smart agricultural practices with the main focus on farm-based soil and water conservation, organic vegetable cultivation, post-harvest management and consequently increase their annual income through established forward and backward linkages thereby ensuring food security and reduced migration. Promotion of sustainable vegetable farming to enhance livelihood of farmers is the goal of the project with the objectives to form Farmer Interest Groups and sensitize them about the need of the intervention ensuring better participation and to empower the capacity of households in making fair choices for sustainable agriculture development coping current climatic condition with increase agriculture production ensuring qualitative produce with less pesticides or chemical inputs.
