Agriculture has become a pride of the international economy providing livelihood to majority of the rural population. Current scenario of climate change, drastic increase in human population, industrialization, deforestation and huge demand of agriculture produce attracting farmers, scientists, politicians and policy makers to engage in sustainable agricultural systems.
We are doing some contract farming projects in India. The arable lands are available and land owners are interested to give land on contract basis to the farming management firms instead industrialists. We have an ongoing farming project in Pune district of Maharashtra and engaged in growing sugarcane, onions, wheat, Bajra, Sorghum, fruit crops, vegetables, pulses, flowers, cattle farming and bio-gas production . This is a very small initiative taken by PGP towards involving local people in agriculture farming and transfering technology. Irrigation management and organic farming is key success of our work.
