Sustainable Agricultural Project
MUKTI and BTS jointly finished a pilot Sustainable Agricultural project with the help of AID. They helped farmers to adopt agricultural practices that are economically viable, environmentally sound. They were trained to (a) Prepare seed bed: how to raise crops in their home gardens, containers and community fields. (b) Prepare Bio-Inputs like Amrit, Fish, Coconut and Herbal Tonic. These microbial rich bio solutions are the main component of soil reclamation process. It will drastically reduce the cost of cultivation and improve the soil fertility. Practical demonstrations are given to the farmers.
