New Seeds, Bigger Yields

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

It is the season of paddy cultivation and all the villagers are busy with it. During this time, I had an opportunity to give them ideas for ​​better farming. 

 

I am encouraging them to use hybrid seeds of a type that will give them better rice yields. Some of them have been convinced to do so, but their main concern is whether these seeds are reproducible, as they always keep some seeds from total production for the next cultivation to keep the cycle going. This hybrid seed is reproducible only twice, after which they will have to buy fresh seeds from the market. But the yield is three times better than the seeds currently being used.

We introduced Transformational Community Development (TCD) in Sugapahari Village. We gave them some basic ideas about the TCD lessons and how they work.

 

Thank you,
