Agriculture & Livelihood

Almost 65% out of the total population of India lives in rural areas as per the census data 2019. Given the poor socio-economic base and poor infrastructure, the small and marginal farmers are unable to improve their livelihoods. Acute shortage of fodder limits livestock productivity. Adoption rate of new technologies is very low due to poor investment capacity and inadequate extension services. The inability to manage erratic and deficit rain-water through proper harvesting methods has always been a constraint in upgrading productivity. Therefore, GCL has been providing support to create Agro based livelihood and also promote best practices to increase agriculture productivity.
