Why field visits to meet farmers?
Zizira often visits farmers to different villages. We ask them question like:
"What are the farmers cultivating? Do they get adequate returns for the ‘investments’ they make by way of labor and money? Is it easy to reach their produce to the market? What are their pain points? Where do they need help, if any? Normally, most of them follow organic farming. But, do they know the value of following organic farming?
Are they aware that the Government of India and the Government of Meghalaya are promoting organic farming?"
Read on to learn more about traditional farmers of Meghalaya from our field visits.
