Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to build a climate resilient agriculture system for small farm holders protecting them against the vagaries of nature simultaneously increasing their profitability.
It's all part of making a better world.
Farms are going to have water security, enhanced soil health, better access to climate resilient agriculture technology, increase market access and institutional financing.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by farmers who are involved in rainfed agriculture.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Increase in crop yields
Increase in farm income
increase in water use efficiency
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
By doing crop cutting experiments, an increase in yield will be reflected in the experiment after the interventions. Increase in the area under micro irrigation will give me an idea about increase water use efficiency. Increase in farm income will be reflected in the census data.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
