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.


Even after sharing this idea, many villagers were hesitant to move forward because they fear losing their capital if production is not per their expectation. But some of those who trust us joined us in this journey of rotational cropping. We started with a few villagers and, surprisingly, some others also joined. Now, we are nearly at 20 percent participation.
