WORKING TOWARDS IMPROVING THE LIVES OF 10 MILLION MARGINAL FARMERS IN INDIA

About MITRA

MITRA focuses on empowering small and marginal farmers by nudging them to adopt latest technologies and best farming practices. The program bridges the lack of last-mile delivery of agriculture extension services at the grass roots by helping marginal farmers to access existing public extension facilities, engage with agri-scientists and embrace best farming practices, and more importantly, to impart this to other farmers through peer learning and sharing. We envision a sustainable and scalable community platform to address the last-mile delivery challenges, which can be replicated across the country to benefit 100 million small and marginal farmers.
