Farmer Development

This program is initiated to address the problems of farmers practicing farming daily. In this program we have conducted a number of activities from distributing more than 500 noni plants to developing villages. In the first year of our commencement (2019-2020) SIF has trained more than one thousand farmers in integrated farming techniques to make farming stress-free for them and agricultural laborers who earn a low income. Our foundation aims to train more than 2% of Indian farmers by 2025.Agriculture employs about 58% of India’s workforce, but contributes only about 16% to the GDP. The percentage of women who depend on agriculture for their livelihood is as high as 84%. Women make up about 33% of cultivators and about 47% percent of agricultural laborers. Despite the high ratio of workforce in this field it is still under developed.
