PKVY(Paramparika Krishi Vikash Yojana/Indigenous Farming Development Programme)

It is a great opportunity and challenge for the Agragamee that the Government of Odisha has sanctioned a project to cover 2000acres in Rayagada and Koraput Districts to help small land holders/ tribal farmers take up their traditional agriculture to check the influx of Chemical Fertilisers and Pesticides. The farmers in 40 clusters will take a vow not to adopt anything Chemical and promote Organic and ecological Farming. This 3-year project will cover mostly rain-fed upland where Millets, Pulses, Oilseeds and , above all, Vegetables will be grown intensively. The farmers will be given training to produce their own manures, vermin-compost, bio-pesticides etc. Conservation of local seeds with bio-diversity will also be promoted. PKVY will show case the NRM related activities where soil, water and forest will play a role in ensuring Food and Nutrition Securities.
