District Level Symposium on SRI

A District Level Symposium on SRI was held at Pragati, Koraput on 5th of December, 2008. This also saw the inauguration of the booklet on State Agricultural Policy 2008. There were sessions where farmers from Hardoli Village shared their experiences on their tryst with SRI.

Around 25 farmers adopted SRI for the first time during Kharif 2008. This was introduced by Damayanti Nari Pragati Sangha Voluntary Organization. The SRI farmers are now reaping better economic benefit.

Dr. Norman Uphoff, among others visited the symposium. Some images from the same are shown below.
