Reach of Krishi Vikas Rath
This initiative will be documented across India, with major states including, but not limited to, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, Orissa, West Bengal, Assam, Bihar, Uttaranchal, and Haryana. This is the first phase of operations.
Our farmers are selected based on our already existing database in our marketing network. In addition to that, we attend local organizations farmers associations, Department of agriculture, Raith Samparka Kendra (RSK), Seed corporations, Co-operative Societies, Banks, and Gram Panchayats etc. This helps us get a wider reach across India. Furthermore, we will be conducting an extensive field survey in major crops growing areas in the states mentioned above. This way we will get to assess and record existing practices followed by the farmers, and learn how they will be able to and how readily they will adopt the recommended packages. In turn, we will get to learn about any gaps, or constraints they might have in implementing these practices, and we do this methodically in the form of survey formats or questionnaires. This is how we shortlist farmers from different states, be it from small, medium or large farmlands.
