Second Cropping Catches On

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

Per our plan of initiating second cropping in Dhoker Jhara Village, this month we encouraged villagers to initiate second cropping from now on. This way, their unused land can be used to generate crops to sell and for their own consumption, instead of leaving the land unused for several months.

 

Nontraditional Crop Development

This past quarter, we focused on encouraging villagers to find relief from traditions that hold them back and showed them a couple of examples that broke with tradition. We started teaching them how to break ground with a power tiller instead of using an ox. Also, we are teaching them treading using only the power tiller. It works fast and gives far better results than the traditional ways of doing all these things.

Villagers are taking on rice paddy production better than usual. We were expecting our recent satisfactory harvest after all the villagers used the hybrid rice seeds in their farms. This again helped me to draw their attention and win their trust.
