Educating Benefits of Productive Seeds to UP Farmers
To feed the growing population of India, it is essential to take significant leaps in agriculture. In states like Uttar Pradesh, which is one of the most densely populated states of India, the agricultural challenges are huge and need technical reforms at the fundamental level. This documentary projects the insight of a farmer who wants to replace traditional method of farming with modern practices and solutions by gaining knowledge, agricultural techniques and sustainable farming solutions.
DuPont collaborated with the government and private sectors to open the seed school to impart knowledge and solutions to farmer community. The programme was focused on teaching farmers everything about productive seeds, techniques from sowing to harvesting and technical farming techniques of hybrid rice seeds.
The seed school programme was successful in addressing the benefits of productive seeds and helped farmers improve yields and the entire agricultural ecosystem.
