Sustainable Agriculture

Our team sees sustainable agriculture as the means to promote the efficient use of resources, improve soil health, build resilience to extreme climatic events, and improve farmer incomes. The Council is currently evaluating the impact of Zero Budget Natural Farming in the state of Andhra Pradesh and is supporting the state government to scale-up this sustainable practice. Agriculture is the primary occupation for nearly half of India’s population. Nearly 70 per cent are marginal farmers, owning less than one hectare of land.
