Preamble of farm shiksha

Our Vision

Farm Shiksha is empowered with the vision of teaching the young generation about the best farming practices around the world.


Statistics reveal that two out of seven children in the Urban India believe that fruits and veggies grow in super markets and we envision ourselves to change that.


Focus


Stop Agro Brain-drain


We must emulate the success stories in Maharashtra and Punjab, where agriculture students have taken up farming and are using proper seeds, machinery and agro management techniques. Agriculture is the biggest sector in India, yet the sector and its workforce are not valued. This must change.


Handholding is required to strengthen farm livelihoods.


We must also move away from mono-cropping and invest in the diversity of crops that are indigenous to various regions of the country. It is a pity that we have to import wheat, even though we have the capacity to meet the growing demand.The youth should also be taught about profitable farming techniques and systems so that less land and resources are used. They should not only be taught about integrated farming, but also about latest techniques in mushroom farming, freshwater aquaculture and dairy farming.


Farm Enterprenuership


The youth of this country have high energy levels—we comprise 65 per cent of the population. The youth must be made aware of the prevailing conditions—soil health, rainfall patterns and cropping cultures. They must also be apprised of the severity of the water crisis and taught the ancient art of water harvesting.
