Sirsi LEADer Helps Families Through Sustainable Agriculture Practices

Posted on Wednesday, November 06, 2013 by LEAD

In villages near Sirsi, agriculture dominates the local economy and makes up the majority of people's livelihood.  LEADer Seetaram from MES College of Commerce, Sirsi, recognized the importance of sustainable agriculture, and decided to implement local solutions.  He trained two families about effective animal husbandry.  Specifically, he taught the families how to grow more grass for cows in smaller areas.  Additionally, he taught farmers about vermi compost. Finally, he trained the farmers and their families about how to accurately use pesticides.  These farmers are now regularly practicing these sustainable agricultural techniques, which is saving them money and therefore adding to their income.
