  • Climate resilient initiatives- WADI Development

    With increasing effects of climate change, there is imminent threat to livelihoods of vulnerable groups such as tribals, farmers etc. Tribals live a life of challenges- no adequate access to most basic amenities. As such majority of the households live a life of 'hand to mouth' existence. To improve their situation, Krushi Vikas is promoting horticultural plantations on 700+ acres covering 700+ households in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh whereby they shall derive sustainable sources of income. Further this shall contribute to natural resource management, sustainable landscape management, climate and in promoting resilient livelihoods.

  • Better Cotton Initiative

    Cotton is a renewable natural resource but the future of cotton production is vulnerable to poor environmental management, poor working conditions and unstable markets. In 2005, a group of visionary organizations came together to work out a practical solution that would secure the sustainable future of the industry. The result was Better Cotton Initiative. Better Cotton means producing cotton in a way that cares for the environment through processes that minimize the negative impact of fertilizers and pesticides, and care for water, soil health and natural habitats. BCI Farmers achieve better yields and more financial security through access to global markets, whilst improving the working conditions in their fields.

    1. Reduce the environmental impact of cotton production
    2. Improve livelihoods and economic development in cotton producing areas
    3. Improve commitment to and flow of Better Cotton throughout supply chain
    4. Ensure the credibility and sustainability of the Better Cotton Initiative

    Krushi Vikas is working with 50000+ households in 5 major cotton growing districts of Maharashtra with the aforementioned objectives.

  • Dr Panjabrao Deshmukh Jaivik Sheti Misison

    Landscape degradation is increasing with injudicious and unscientific use of available natural resources. There is rampant use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides whereby ecosystem is getting polluted and natural balance is disturbed. To address the same, Krushi Vikas is promoting sustainable agricultural practices among the farmers.
    Major objectives are:
    1. To promote judicious use of fertilizers and pesticides
    2. To collectivize and aggregate small and marginal farmers for increased returns
    3. To aware farmers about natural ecosystem and how one can contribute towards its sustainability
    4. To facilitate credit and market linkages

  • Jal Jeevan Mission

    Water is indispensable for the survival of all forms of life on earth. As such its use and conservation is crucial for sustainable development. With increasing effects of climate change, several regions are facing water crisis that is threatening their livelihoods and existence. Underlying the above, Govt. of India has launched Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM) scheme whereby it aims to ensure water security for all.

    Krushi Vikas is empaneled as a KRC (Key Resource Centre) and ISA (Implementing Support Agency) in the states of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. Krushi Vikas is providing trainings to PRI bodies members and key stakeholders as a KRC and also facilitating implementation of the JJM scheme as an ISA.

  • Jal Kal Jeevan Program- Climate Resilience and Future Readiness

    The program is being implemented in Nimbhere village of Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra. The village has around 512 HHs. Water scarcity, seasonal fodder deficit, unemployment, migration, poverty, heavy soil erosion, improper soil & water conservation measures, and poor productivity levels etc. are the major issues faced by the village

    The goal of the program is to ensure climate resilience and future readiness of the communities against the increasing effects of climate change. Major interventions include soil and water conservation, agricultural productivity enhancement, livelihoods diversification and institution building.

  • Jalsamruddhi: Ensuring Water Security

    Building Drought Resilient Agrarian Communities through systematic interventions for capacity building and soil & water conservation in drought affected villages in Ahmednagar district.

    The area proposed consists of three villages viz. Kolyachiwadi, Varshinde, and Wabhalewadi in Rahuri taluka of Ahmadnagar district. Total geographical area is 2521 ha. Water scarcity during December to June is the major issue observed in the proposed villages, followed by poor agricultural productivity, decreasing soil fertility, insufficient fodder availability for livestock, lack of secondary livelihoods, poor access to health and sanitation facilities etc. Main objective of Project is to “develop a sustainable model of participatory soil & water management for long term well-being of primary stakeholders in drought prone area of Maharashtra”. The activities planned for next three years aims for in-situ soil moisture conservation, and comprehensive development of water resources in the project area to its maximum potential through community engagement for scalable and sustainable impact. The components of project are grouped under thematic areas viz.
    • Community mobilization in SHG Federations/ FPO and strengthening for project sustainability,
    • In-situ soil moisture conservation through area treatment,
    • Water resource conservation through drainage line treatments,
    • Participatory management of available water resource,
    • Promotion of best package of practices to enhance cropping pattern and major crops yield levels,
    • Enhancement of vegetative cover and

  • Badlav: Integrated Village Development Project


    Goal: To improve quality of life of the villagers living in the identified villages on Pune District by promoting Socio – Economic Interventions in an integrated manner.

    Objective: The main goal of the project is “To promote Agriculture and Allied livelihoods along with Natural Resource Management”. The overall objectives can be further defined as given below-
    • To Prepare plan for Integrated Village Development of identified villages
    • To undertake soil and water conservation treatments
    • To promote and strengthen community institutions like SHGs.
    • To improve quality of education
    • To promote other Agriculture and non-farm enterprises
    • To Facilitate Convergence for promotion of proposed activities for Socio Economic Development of the Project Community

  • Formation and promotion of Farmers Producers Organisations (FPOs)

    More than 85% of India's farmers are small and marginal with very small landholdings that increases costs of production and reduces returns thus rendering agriculture somewhat 'unwanted' and 'unprofitable'. Farming is prone to the increasing vagaries of monsoon and effects of climate change as well.
    To facilitate sustainable development of small and marginal farmers concept of collectivization and aggregation of farmers has been envisaged. Through FPOs, the otherwise hapless farmers shall have an agency of their own through which they can reduce cost of production through aggregate purchase of inputs and sale of produce. Further through value chain interventions, credit and market linkages and enterprise development they shall be able to derive increased returns for their produce that shall translate into better standards of living.

    Krushi Vikas promoting 100+ FPOs directly across Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat and is indirectly supporting 500+ FPOs through its 'All About FPO' initiative
