Key features and activities of Project Haldhar Utththan include:


Farmer Training and Capacity Building: The project provides training and capacity-building programs to farmers. It focuses on imparting knowledge and skills related to modern agricultural practices, crop management, soil health, water conservation, organic farming techniques, and the use of advanced farming technologies. These programs aim to enhance farmers’ capabilities, improve yields, and promote sustainable farming methods.


Access to Resources and Inputs: Project Haldhar Utththan works towards ensuring that farmers have access to essential resources and inputs. It facilitates access to quality seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and other agricultural inputs. The project also helps farmers in accessing credit, government schemes, and subsidies that are available to support their agricultural activities.


Farm Infrastructure Development: The project assists farmers in developing and improving their farm infrastructure. It focuses on initiatives such as irrigation systems, farm mechanization, storage facilities, and post-harvest management techniques. These efforts aim to enhance farm productivity, reduce post-harvest losses, and improve overall efficiency in agricultural operations.


Market Linkages and Value Addition: Project Haldhar Utththan facilitates market linkages for farmers, connecting them to potential buyers, markets, and value-added opportunities. It helps farmers in understanding market trends, pricing mechanisms, and value chain integration. The project also promotes value addition activities, such as processing, packaging, and branding, to enable farmers to fetch better prices for their produce.


Knowledge Sharing and Exchange: The project fosters a culture of knowledge sharing and exchange among farmers. It organizes farmer field days, workshops, demonstrations, and study tours to facilitate the exchange of best practices, experiences, and success stories among farmers. The project also establishes platforms for farmers to share their challenges, innovations, and solutions with each other.

The project also raises awareness about the importance of biodiversity conservation, soil health management, and climate-smart agriculture.


Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs): The project supports the formation and strengthening of Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs). These organizations enable farmers to collectively market their produce, access financial services, and negotiate better terms with buyers. The project provides technical assistance, training, and support in the establishment and management of FPOs.
