Agriculture and Rural Development


Global Village Foundation agriculture Team is engaged in holistic development of agriculture for the state of Haryana.

Haryana is synonymous with agriculture; it is a rice bowl of India. Though Haryana have progressed steadily in farm production but allied sectors like fisheries and forestry which would have grown as well had fallen back in the growth trajectory. GVF is committed to reverse this negative trend by focusing on Forestry and horticulture in the state. It is our endeavour to introduce traditional Indian crops like millets and other water arid crops which will have significant effect on the topography of the region.

The required level of investment for the development of marketing, storage and cold storage infrastructure is estimated to be huge. The government has not been able to implement schemes to raise investment in marketing and infrastructure. GVF will do research on topics like, Construction of Rural Godowns, Market Research and Information Network, and Development / Strengthening of Agricultural Marketing Infrastructure, Grading and Standardisation.

Achievements

Advised the Government of Haryana and accordingly helped the Government in constituting clusters of 10-15 villages in each district. These clusters would be specialized in producing agricultural products and agro processing based on market demands. They all will be diverse depending on the ecological zone of the region. There are efforts made for market linkages to ensure sound income for the farmers.
